Toronto Mayor: I Do Not Use Crack Cocaine

Yesterday, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford denied the existence of a cell phone video in which he is smoking crack. “I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine,” Ford stated at a press conference in front of Toronto’s City Hall. Ford was also caught lying about a 1999 marijuana possession arrest in Florida.

It’s nice to see that this sort of thing doesn’t only happen in Washington D.C. Of course, the source of the alleged video is Gawker, so perhaps this story should be taken with a grain of salt.
