This campaign sign shows just how bad things are for Rob Ford

This campaign billboard -- for a candidate "running" against Toronto Mayor  Rob Ford -- was first spotted Monday morning. Turns out it's just one of a handful of such signage, using fictitious candidates to highlight Ford's checkered past and push people to nofordnation.com where information on the real challengers to Ford is provided.

Writes Dom Peat of the QMI Agency:

Within the last year, Ford has admitted to smoking crack cocaine and being drunk in public. He's also been caught threatening to kill someone on video - although Ford claims he was merely doing an impression of wrestler Hulk Hogan when it was filmed. "The current mayor threatens to kill people and gets publicly drunk," read one of the three signs. "If elected, I promise I will just get publicly drunk. Vote Ray Faranzi."

Um, amazing.
