TORONTO — Ontario Premier Doug Ford defended his finance minister Wednesday, saying allegations of sexual misconduct against the veteran legislator referenced in a book by former Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown are nothing but a "disgusting smear campaign."

Ford threw his support behind Vic Fedeli in a series of tweets, calling him "honourable, ethical and decent" and denouncing the allegations in Brown's book as "lies."

Minister @VictorFedeli is one of the most honourable, ethical, and decent individuals I have ever had the privilege of knowing and working with. I stand behind him completely from this disgusting smear campaign. He has my full support. See his statement below. pic.twitter.com/HkwhgDdcYe — Doug Ford (@fordnation) November 14, 2018
