Rob Ford Scandal Explodes: The Best Reactions on Twitter
Toronto Sun Cover, Friday November 1
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has put Canada's most populous city on the world map, but for scandalous reasons. Thursday, police were ordered to released all documents relating to a months-long surveillance of MayorFord, followed by a news conference in which Toronto Chief of Police, Bill Blair, confirmed the existence of a video that allegedly shows Ford smoking crack cocaine.
The story has had international coverage, but Thursday it was a Twitter schadenfreude festival, with Canadian celebs, politicians and pundits gleefully weighing in on the trainwreck that is the "nightmayor".

Politics is one of those professions in which there is one unfailing ingredient of success: utter shamelessness.
