Rob Ford

Troubled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford announced that he will resign from his position as Mayor of Toronto and will check himself into the rehab.

Ford found himself caught up in a scandal when w rumored tape of him smoking crack, surrounded by drug dealers became public. He served as Mayor throughout the fiasco, but I guess he’s had enough of the jokes.

His statement read 

Tonight I want to take some time to speak from my heart to the people of Toronto. It’s not easy to be vulnerable and this is one of the most difficult times in my life. I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence. I have struggled with this for some time.

Today, after taking some time to think about my own well-being, how to best serve the people of Toronto and what is in the best interests of my family, I have decided to take a leave from campaigning and from my duties as Mayor to seek immediate help.

I have tried to deal with these issues by myself over the past year. I know that I need professional help and I am now 100% committed to getting myself right.

I love the people of Toronto, I love being your mayor and I hope you will continue to stand by me. With the support of my family, friends, professionals and the people of Toronto, I will conquer this.

Please keep me and my family in your prayers during these difficult days ahead.

I just want to say to the people of Toronto that I thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement. I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate it.

But shortly after his announcement, Gawker reported that a new video of the former Mayor smoking crack is being shopped for sale. The site posted a still shot of the video. You can see Ford with a pipe in his hand. It’s no way to tell whether or not there’s crack or anything in it.

The video, according to the Globe and Mail, which was also offered a chance to purchase it, was taken this past weekend in his sister Kathy’s basement.
