Rob Ford asks voters not to make him choose between politics and crack

2 May

TORONTO—embattled Mayor Rob Ford today pleaded with his constituents “not to make me choose between my two great loves, politics and crack.” He said he was hoping instead for some sort of agreement that will let him run the city during the week, and then get high on the weekends, and also during the week.

Ford’s plea comes after another video surfaced of him smoking crack, this one made last Saturday. While asking for forgiveness, Ford also lashed out at the source of the video, noting that “when someone does crack in the stands at a Blue Jays game, he should have a reasonable expectation of privacy.”

While no mechanism exists to remove Ford from office before an election this fall, the Toronto city council has slightly altered the role of mayor, changing Ford’s duties from governing the city to standing on the outskirts of town, waving at motorists as they arrive and leave. “He hasn’t even been doing that too well,” said a spokesman.

    No man should have to make that choice.
