Rob Ford, Toronto Mayor, Admits: I Smoked Crack Cocaine

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford acknowledged today what many have suspected for awhile. He smoked crack cocaine at some point last year, but he has a valid excuse:

The politician was in a drunken stupor at the time.

According to The Associated Press, Ford admitted to this hardcore drug use during a Q&A with reporters at City Hall.

"Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine," Ford said. "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."

Yes, there's a tape.

It surfaced in May and the crack allegation has been circulating ever since, though this is the first time Ford has directly discussed the issue; police admitted a few days ago they have a copy of the footage.

Ford previously apologized for excessive drinking and other snafus while in office, but has refused to resign.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair says he's "disappointed" in the mayor, a comment that led to Ford's brother actually saying Blair should resign.

Ford's former driver will soon go on trial for drug and extortion charges (seriously!) and authorities say the tape of Ford doing crack will be made public when that trial begins.

Until then, cops would like to simply speak to Ford, but his attorney has turned down all requests for a meeting.
