Rob Ford Admits Buying Illegal Drugs


Support Crooks and Liars:

And he did so in his own inimitable style. I'll assume his "zero tolerance" applies to anyone other than himself, or his druggie friends.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted today he has purchased illegal drugs in the past two years, just one of many stunning moments at a city council meeting in which Ford faced a motion that calls on him to take a leave of absence to deal with personal problems

Coun. Denzil Minnan-Wong — who is sponsoring the motion that asks Ford to step aside, apologize and co-operate with police — asked Ford, "Do you have zero tolerance of guns, drugs and gangs?"

The mayor said he does. Minnan-Wong then asked, "Have you purchased illegal drugs in the past two years?"

After a long pause, Ford replied, "Yes I have."
