  1. Toronto Mayor Says: ”Yes, I Have Smoked Crack Cocaine”

    Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford has confessed to crack use, possibly during a “drunken stupor” about a year ago. This surprise confession made to a scrum of reporters outside his office comes after months of speculation following reports of a video that reportedly showed the mayor smoking drugs. In a press conference, the mayor apologized but did not resign, saying, ”I was elected to do a job and that’s exactly what I’m going to continue doing.” These latest developments will no doubt provide more fodder to the late night talk shows that have been skewering the embattled mayor.
