Ranting about police surveillance

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.
