Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s LSAT Flaws Will Crack You Up

In case you haven’t heard, Toronto mayor Rob Ford recently admitted to smoking crack. His staffers have gone to the police with concerns about his alcohol abuse, which includes drinking and driving and swilling vodka bottle after vodka bottle in high school parking lots. His driver has been arrested on drug dealing charges. Is Ford going to resign? His answer is an emphatic no. And unless he’s convicted of a crime, there’s nothing anyone can do to remove him from office.

Toronto holds a special place on the LSAT. LSAC is often keen on reminding LSAT test takers that the LSAT is used for Canadian law schools, too. As a result, I’d wager that Toronto is one of the most used names for a variable in the LSAT Logic Games section. We’ll take a look here at some of the flawed logic surrounding Mayor Ford’s situation:
