Horwath says if the accusations, particularly the ones about the mismanagement of the business, are true, then voters will be concerned that Ford doesn't have a platform that outlines how he will pay for his promises.

She says people will have to make up their own minds about the timing of the lawsuit ahead of Thursday's vote, but the allegations raise more questions than answers.
