Lex Posted November 5, 2013 Share Posted November 5, 2013 Toronto sure has a fun mayor. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Accused of Smoking Crack By Samantha GrossmanMay 18, 20134 Comments AP Toronto Mayor Rob Ford leaves his home on May 17, 2013. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been criticized in the past for his indelicate behavior, and now, he’s facing questions about whether or not he smoked crack, after reporters at Gawker and the Toronto Star insist that they’ve seen video proof. Wow. Rob Ford is even more fun than I thought. From CBS News - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said Tuesday he smoked crack "probably a year ago" when he was in a "drunken stupor," an admission that follows months of accusations during which he has refused to step down. The allegations that he had been caught on video smoking crack surfaced in May. Ford initially insisted the video didn't exist and sidestepped questions about whether he had ever smoked crack. He was forced to backtrack after police said last week they had obtained a copy of the video, which has not been released publicly. "Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine," Ford told reporters outside his office. "There have been times when I've been in a drunken stupor. That's why I want to see the tape. I want everyone in the city to see this tape. I don't even recall there being a tape or video. I want to see the state that I was in." Ford walked out of his office and asked reporters to ask him the question they first asked him in May. He acknowledged he smoked it but said: "Am I an addict? No. Have I tried it, probably in one of my drunken stupors a year ago." 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
