Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is taking a break from his re-election campaign—and his gig running a city—to “seek immediate help” after another video of him allegedly smoking crack cocaine has emerged.
How did this video come to be? The mayor’s drug dealer is looking for another payday.
Reports The Globe and Mail:
A second video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking what has been described as crack cocaine by a self-professed drug dealer was secretly filmed in his sister’s basement early Saturday morning.
The clip, which was viewed by two Globe and Mail reporters, shows Mr. Ford taking a drag from a long copper-coloured pipe, exhaling a cloud of smoke and then frantically shaking his right hand. The footage is part of a package of three videos that the drug dealer says he surreptitiously shot around 1:15 a.m., and which he says he is now selling for “at least six figures.”
Approached at City Hall Wednesday evening, Mr. Ford declined to respond to questions about the video. Shortly after The Globe confronted Mr. Ford, he issued a statement. “I have decided to take a leave from campaigning and from my duties as Mayor to seek immediate help,” he said.
Yes, despite all this f-ckery this man is still the mayor of Toronto.
