The Sun's Joe Warmington has written a column accompanied by the headline: Nothing sticks to Teflon Ford.
"He may have lied about a few indiscretions but when it comes to his claims of going into City Hall as a relentless, common sense tax chopper, people seem to believe Ford will end the fat-cat spending party."
Warmington goes on to cite a Sun online poll, which asked readers whether they cared or not about the recent drug charge/did-he-lie-about-it? revelation. The unscientific but telling results: 84% didn't care.
The Sun typically has one of the more conservative readerships and has given favourable coverage to the Etobicoke candidate (although not today), but judging by the chatter on Twitter, Facebook, the coffee shop I stopped at en route to work today and the Star's own comment section - I think it is entirely possible this poll is more than a blip.
Some have predicted that between the immigration controversy and Thursday's scandal, Ford's campaign may finally have hit a bump it can't plow threw. But with Ford's clear "stop the gravy train" message and a bona fide track record for helping residents navigate city hall bureaucracy, I'm not so sure.
