Former mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson took to Facebook Saturday to address comments she has received after making inflammatory allegations against Mayor Rob Ford.
“So much hate from people today, yet it’s the supportive messages that have me in tears,” she wrote.
“So many women have been assaulted and I am ashamed that as publisher of Women’s Post I wasn’t aware of the extent of it. I will do better.”
In another post, Thomson thanked former Vaughan MPP Greg Sorbara for his support.
“Big thank you to Greg Sorbara your words of support mean a lot to me today,” she wrote.
Sorbara had come to Thomson’s defense on Friday after she claimed Ford made inappropriate comments and grabbed her “ass” at a gala event Thursday night.
“To me, it doesn’t sound like something she would just make up in order to get a little ink,” Sorbara told the Toronto Star. “Sarah was a very strong candidate, a very aggressive candidate, one who always wanted to speak her mind, and did.”
Sorbara also supported Thomson when she was running for the Ontario Liberals in the ward of Trinity-Spadina.
