Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Accused of Smoking Crack


Toronto Mayor Rob Ford attends a city council meeting to debate on casinos in Toronto, May 21, 2013. The mayor of Canada's largest city, facing allegations that he smoked crack cocaine, and made racial and homophobic slurs on video, must either refute the accusations or step down, fellow city politicians say. An editor from U.S. media outlet Gawker and two reporters from the Toronto Star said separately they saw a cellphone video that appeared to show Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine.
