Rob Ford Will Seek Re-Election as Toronto Mayor Despite Crack Controversy
Resisting calls to resign
TORONTO (AP)—Rob Ford says he loves his job and will stay on as mayor of Toronto despite admitting for the first time that he smoked crack.
Ford said Tuesday he will continue in his job and will seek re-election next year.
Ford earlier acknowledged he smoked crack "probably a year ago" when he was in a "drunken stupor," an admission that immediately intensified the pressure on him to resign.
