Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been fighting rumors and allegations he was video taped smoking crack.
Some guy contacted Gawker.com and said a guy he knows has the tape but wanted “6-figures” for it.
Well, Gawker raised the $200,000 to buy the video but the contact person dropped out of sight.
Now this: Gawker reports that “after a long silence, the video’s owner reached out to the intermediary we have been dealing with. He told him the video is ‘gone.'”
What could that mean?
It might mean that the video has been destroyed.
It might mean that it has been handed over to Ford or his allies.
It might mean that the guys intends to sell or give it to someone else.
It might mean that the Toronto Police Department has seized it and plans to use it as evidence in a criminal investigation.
It might mean that it has been transferred to the custody of Somali community leaders for safekeeping.
It might mean it never existed.
It’s amazing how one stupid post on a scum website started all that.
