Justin Bieber’s defenders: Rob Ford and the Rob Ford’s skeevy sometimes-driver’s lawyer

As I keep saying: there’s a suitable Family Guy picture for every Rob Ford story.

So it’s come to this: the headline in a Toronto Sun story reads Mayor Rob Ford defends Justin Bieber.

In an interview with the DC-area sports radio show The Sports Junkies, Ford defended the pop star, who’s charged with assault. “You know what, he’s a young guy. At 19 years old I wish I was as successful as he was. He’s 19 years old guys, think back to when you were 19, you know.” It’s a mix of “Boys will be boys” and “Hey, he’s rich, and above the law!”

Bieber is also facing charges of driving while drunk and high in Miami, which is something that Ford can sympathize with.

Also stepping up to Bieber’s defence is his lawyer Seth Weinstein. Seth, in a not-too-unexpected twist, is also the lawyer for Sandro Lisi, one of Rob Ford’s skeevy still-living-wth-parents friends, and Rob’s suspicious-package- exchanging buddy, and sometimes driver.
