Deputy Mayor denies report that staffers were sent on beer run

The Sun learned that Kelly's staffers picked up a few cases for a Super Bowl party

Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly denies that city staff was sent out on a beer run for him.

The Sun has learned that last week, two of Kelly's staffers picked up cases of beer at the Beer Store and delivered them to Kelly's home in Scarborough for this weekend's Super Bowl.

Kelly says it's no big deal, "This is something that's happening on private time, and so I don't see any problems at all."

The Deputy Mayor further explained the situation, "It's a gathering, staff. The refreshments were brought by them, on their own time, their own car."

Kelly's people say this happened in the evening, after work hours and they used their vehicle to get the beer and their own money for a Super Bowl party at Kelly's Sunday.

    If this had been Rob Ford, Daniel pissy pants Dale & Robyn Donothing, would be hiding and peeking over his fence, after all the fake mayor is a liberal hack.

      @Jake let's not compare the two conservatives. very unfair!
      Ford is a drunk driving crack smoking self entitled petty criminal with criminal gang associations with a dysfunctional family that happens to have mental issues of the highest extreme.
      Ford is so way out there he makes the right wing actually sound credible as hard as that may seem.

    My, my, my....look how the tables have turned.

    Now lets see, if this were Rob Ford we would have:
    *Blanket media coverage
    *Reporters hounding the mayor outside his office
    *One or two press conferences
    *No doubt a Toronto Star headline
    *This material being circulated through the Late Night TV circuit
    *Haters coming out of the woodwork to joyfully call for the mayor's head
    *Professionals on the radio talk shows trying to further diagnose/psycho-analyze the mayor
    *A number of city councillors saying that the mayor is an embarrassment to the city

    But, of course we, are all too naive to believe that only the mayor has skeletons in his closet, and no one else right? How about we follow the smoking gun, and see what's really hiding in Norm Kelly's closet? The man's got nothing to hide- right? Will the Toronto Star assign a 17-man roster rummaging through Norm Kelly's closet? Where the heck is Gawker when you need them?

      @Karl Burgin Your sour grapes are more tender than usual today, computer tech boy.

    Looking at his face, he looks so gone, so senile.
