Toronto mayor to seek help as new crack video surfaces Published: May 1, 2014

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said Wednesday he will take a leave of absence and seek treatment for alcohol, according to USA Today, as reports surfaced of a second video showing the mayor with what may be crack cocaine.

Ford, who is seeking re-election in the Oct. 27 vote, said he will take an immediate leave from his job and his campaign.

"I have a problem with alcohol, and the choices I have made while under the influence. I have struggled with this for some time," Ford said in a statement late Wednesday.
