Toronto’s Mayor Is Reportedly Caught Smoking Crack Like It’s 1991 Or Something

A compromising picture of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is circulating through international media organizations, and let's just say that it's not a good look. Mayor Ford seems to be smoking what looks like a crack pipe, which, if you follow common sense or politics, is obviously a bad situation for a elected official. Then again, former D.C Mayor Marion Barry got caught out there doing the same thing and he got re-elected. So all is not lost. Still, crack in 2013? That’s just weird. What, they don’t have synthetic weed in Canada?


From the Toronto Star:

A cellphone video that appears to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine is being shopped around Toronto by a group of Somali men involved in the drug trade.

Two Toronto Star reporters have viewed the video three times. It appears to show Ford in a room, sitting in a chair, wearing a white shirt, top buttons open, inhaling from what appears to be a glass crack pipe. Ford is incoherent, trading jibes with an off-camera speaker who goads the clearly impaired mayor by raising topics including Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau and the Don Bosco high school football team Ford coaches.
