Rob Ford adds more items to Ebay auction
By Christina Succi
The newest offerings were added on Sunday and include the sweater that Ford appears to be wearing in the photo taken outside an alleged crackhouse in Etobicoke that surfaced during the investigation into Ford and his friend and occasional driver Alessandro “Sandro” Lisi.
Items listed include the description that each is the original and “not a reproduction- there is only one of these in existence.”
Earlier this week, Ford listed the tie that he wore when he confessed to smoking crack cocaine.
The tie, which is decorated with NFL logos, is sitting at a bid of more $15,000 as of Monday morning.
“A minimum of 10 per cent of the profits will go to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for [Ford’s] specific cancer.” – Graeme McEachern
Ford’s constituency assistant, Graeme McEachern told Humber News that the tie was just the beginning of the release of controversial items.
“The tie is going to raise the most money as of now but there are more things coming that will make money,” said McEachern.
“Some things will be more controversial than others, that’s all I’m going to say.”
McEachern says a minimum of 10 per cent of the profits will go to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre for his specific cancer, and the rest will go to different charities, still to be determined.
“We just started the auction so we haven’t decided the other 90 per cent, but most likely all cancer charities, seeing as his mother struggled with cancer and his dad passed from cancer,” said McEachern. “Zero per cent is going to him.”
McEachern says they still have “hundreds” of items they want to list after clearing out an office full of memorabilia.
