Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was caught on video Monday bum-rushing a female Councillor as the council voted to strip the admitted crack smoker of most of his mayoral powers.
After admitting to smoking crack and drinking excessively, the embattled mayor had hoped his 44% approval rating might keep him in office.
This incident is likely to be the end of his political career.
Toronto’s embattled mayor had admitted to drug abuse, after six months of media reports, police investigations, and Ford’s own denials. When asked by a stunned reporter when that happened, the mayor replied, “probably during one of my drunken stupors.”
