Mayor Ford: Crack Addict?

Mayor Ford - Crack Addict?

Oh Mayor Ford…. I’m gone one week and now you’re hanging out with Somali drug dealers smoking crack. I know you’re trying to lose weight, but there are better ways!

The gossip website, Gawker, broke the story on Mayor Ford’s crack habit by reporting there is a cellphone video for sale that shows the Toronto mayor using a crack pipe. The Toronto Star literally jizzed their pants when they heard this and sent two reporters to view the video. The druggies who sold Mayor Ford his crack are asking for $200,000 to release the 90 second clip – half of which has already been raised by a campaign led by Gawker.

In addition to the crack smoking, the Toronto Star said Mayor Ford used a homophobic slur to describe Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau in the video and made racially charged remarks about the high school football players he coaches. I MUST see this video.

Ford, however, has remained relatively silent on the issue. On Friday, Ford told reporters that the “allegations are ridiculous. It’s another story with respect to the Toronto Star going after me and that’s all.”

Since then Rob Ford has offered no explanation for the video and refuses to say whether he has smoked crack while in office. Ford’s deputy mayor thinks he should speak up.

“I think he should say something, yes,” Ford’s deputy mayor, Doug Holyday, said in an interview. “I think the air needs to be cleared, and I don’t think it’s clear right now.”

Mayor Ford’s fiercest (and fattest) supporter, his brother Councillor Doug Ford, didn’t really know what to say.

“I asked Rob to be straight up with me and he tells me he has no idea about what is in this video,” Doug Ford said. “Until we see the video, it’s difficult to comment, but I can tell you that I have never seen Rob involved in anything like that.”

The Mayor Ford crack scandal has even reached the American late-night circuit, bringing much pride to the city of Toronto. Last night, both the Daily Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live chose to feature Canada’s favourite crack smoking mayor.

Jon Stewart was particularly enthralled by Mayor Ford walking face first into a news camera:

Jimmy Kimmel, on the other hand, was more interested in uncovering the crack video itself:

On the bright side, the Mayor Ford / crack cocaine incident, has cheered Torontonians up from the Leafs’ disastrous NHL playoffs defeat last Monday.
