Will the Real Rob Ford Please Stand Up?

Rob Ford's former press secretary, Adrienne Batra, addresses the hullabaloo regarding the mayor's pending absence from Pride events:
I know Rob Ford. He is a far more tolerant individual than many of the people attacking him. Ford's problem isn't homophobia, nor does he have a hidden agenda to take away gay rights. His concern is that his participation in a Pride event, particularly the parade, will tick off his political base. But Ford needs to remember his base consists of a lot more people than social conservatives.
Where is this individual? I thought conservatives were all about standing up for their principles? Or, perhaps he's more concerned about maintaining the politics of division.

If it walks like a weasel, it's a weasel.
