Florida has finally found a crime epicenter that it can take the moral high ground against: Canada.
While the crack-tacular Rob Ford has been able to hold on to his mayoral title — albeit with reduced powers — a Florida mayor with an alleged taste for Oxycodone wasn't so lucky.
A Bradford County sheriff drew the line this week after arresting Barry Layne Moore, the mayor of Hampton, Florida, for allegedly using and selling the opiate.
“This isn’t Toronto,” Sheriff Gordon Smith said in a statement. “We will not tolerate illegal drug activity in my jurisdiction by anyone to include our elected officials.”
Ford, who has been accused of (and mostly admitted to) smoking crack, snorting cocaine, smoking weed, blacking out on vodka, taking OxyContin, and eating pussy — all while being the "best mayor" — has not been arrested, and remains in office, finally giving Florida officials something to look down on.
"I feel sorry for the people of Toronto, it is like something bad happening in the family, it kind of embarrasses the whole family," Smith told the Toronto Sun, with absolutely no hint of irony.
According to the Athens Online, Moore was also arrested in 2012 for battery and 2005 for domestic battery. He is being held on a $45,000 bail.
