John Tory Resigns as Mayor of Toronto

Surprise! John Tory has resigned as Mayor of Toronto. The Toronto Star gets credit for breaking the story tonight that John Tory had an affair with a 31-year-old City Hall staffer.

Tory announced he was resigning Friday night at a press conference at city hall, about one hour after the Star revealed he had a months-long relationship with a now former member of his office staff.

Here's John Tory in better times, congratulating me on 1000 episodes of Toronto Mike'd.

Update: I spoke with The Toronto Star's lead journalism on this story about when they learned about it, why they chose not to name the woman and whether there's more to the story.
