Toronto mayor Rob Ford has faced similar criticisms and worse vitriol in the past for his weight, and I wrote about it way back when he was running for the position. From what I understand, Ford has been removed from his position for some kind of integrity issue and it remains to be seen if he's going to stay on as mayor. There is PLENTY to criticize both Christie and Ford for in their politics, but their weight should be off limits. Our bodies are our own business, yes, even if we run for public office and/or are in the public in some other way. I don't care if you're the President or a mega star from a movie. What we do about our health is between us and our doctor, and sometimes maybe our immediate family.
