Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Admits to Smoking Crack

Rob Ford on Crack

After months of crack smoking allegations, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has finally admitted to smoking crack. But it’s okay – he did so in a “drunken stupor”.

In a surprise news conference on Tuesday, Rob Ford confessed to reporters outside of city hall that he has dabbled in crack cocaine before.

Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Mr Ford said outside his office, estimating that it was about a year ago.

“I don’t even remember. Probably in one of my drunken stupors. You guys have seen the state I’ve been in.”

BUT:

I am not an addict,” he claimed.

Ford also maintained he “wasn’t lying” when he previously denied using the drug to reporters.

“I wasn’t lying . You didn’t ask the correct questions,” Ford explained to the media. “You guys kept referring to alcohol.”

What about the May 24 news conference when Ford said “I do not use crack cocaine. Nor am I an addict of crack cocaine,” and the many denials since then? Blame it on the drunken stupor – the mayor can’t be held responsible for his actions while drinking!

As for the alleged tape of the mayor smoking crack while spouting off homophobic and racial slurs, Rob Ford wants everybody (including him) to see it.

I want everybody in the city to see this tape. I don’t even recall there being a tape. I want to see the state I was in,” Ford said.

“There have been times when I’ve been in a drunken stupor. That’s why I want to see the tape.”

The tape is currently in the hands of Toronto police chief Bill Blair, whose officers recovered the footage in a gang-related raid.

This is getting ridiculous. I don’t even know what to say –  except: release the tape Chief Blair! Mayor’s orders!
