Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, Coun. Doug Ford, were taking calls to their radio show for months from longtime friend and current staffer David Price, without apparently being able to recognize his voice.
Yet it took the Toronto Sun's Don Peat only a few seconds before he managed to ID the serial anonymous caller.
Price was suspended from Ford's office after placing a call to the Sun's city hall reporter on Tuesday, to complain about the headline of a story.
The story in question was related to the revelation that Price had appeared on the Ford's Sunday morning radio program a number of times, always anonymously trumpeting Ford's agenda and personal successes.
CBC News first reported the instances, saying Price was told to stop calling when he joined the mayor's staff. The Sun reports that, in response to their own coverage, Price called the newspaper from a blocked number.
