Rob Ford is taking some time to get his act in gear after a new drug video and a new recorded rant at a bar. Reports say the video shows him smoking crack cocaine last Saturday. On top of that, there’s audio from a night out on Monday where Ford is alleged to take digs at the rainbow flag, Councillor Karen Stintz, Italians and more. Ford released a statement saying, “I have decided to take a leave from campaigning and from my duties as Mayor to seek immediate help.” Will this be it? Will he finally get things turned around? ~brooksy
Here’s the letter explaining his leave of absence.
