New Video Emerges of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Drunk

Last Updated, 7:23 p.m. | Two months after he claimed to have embraced sobriety, Mayor Rob Ford of Toronto was caught on video late Monday complaining about police surveillance of him and his associates in a drunken, obscenity-laced rant peppered with Jamaican patois.

As The Toronto Star reports, the mayor’s brother, Doug Ford, initially told reporters that while the 66-second clip uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday “obviously” showed his brother, it could not have been recorded on Monday at a fast-food restaurant as the anonymous videographer claimed, since his brother, who slurred his words in the rambling monologue, no longer drinks or uses drugs.

    Anyone who would condemn Ford on the basis of drunkenness has never spent an extended period of time in Toronto.
