Do I even need to say it?
When politicians do something illegal, they should quit. As if I had to say it. And they should probably be arrested and charged by the police, promptly.
I apply the same penalty to politicians who tell substantial lies.
In this case, as is not infrequent, Ford did both.
Rob Ford is not alone.
* I changed the headline of this replacing the word “Quitting” with “Resigning”, because I want to make it clear that resigning is job 1. Quitting his addictions is job 2.
