Being in a drunken stupor not a great defence for a Mayor

Stuff reports:

says he loves his job and will stay on as mayor of Toronto despite admitting for the first time that he smoked crack.

Ford earlier acknowledged he smoked crack “probably a year ago” when he was in a “drunken stupor”, but balked at growing pressure on him to resign.

His defence of only doing it because he was in a drunken stupour isn’t a great one. Maybe a certain local Mayor could try that argument though 🙂

“I was elected to do a job and that’s exactly what I’m going to continue doing,” Ford said, near tears, at a press conference this morning (NZT). “On October 27 of 2014, I want the people of this great city to decide whether they want Rob Ford to be their mayor.”

In which case he should resign immediately and contest a new election.
