What will happen on the Rob Ford appeal

I have predicted this wrongly so far but ...

Ford will get a stay pending an appeal. The appeal will be expedited and heard in January.

Ford will lose the appeal because the judgment is based on a finding of fact - the donations were not immaterial.

And lawfare will continue to plague elected officials who aren't "cultured" or "nuanced." Just like the libel case where the newspaper isn't named but Ford is, this isn't about wrongdoing so much as "wrongthinking". Joe Fontana can be Mayor 'cause he didn't (allegedly) steal from the city he leads and his political affiliation is of the correct kind.
