Toronto mayor takes leave of absence

Toronto (AP) -- The lawyer for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said Ford will take a leave of absence to seek help for substance abuse.

Dennis Morris said Wednesday night that Ford acknowledges he has a substance abuse problem and he wants to do something about it.

Ford, who is seeking re-election in October, acknowledged last year after months of denials that he smoked crack in a drunken stupor after police said they obtained a video that appeared to show him using the drug. The video has never been released to the public.

News reports of the crack video's existence first surfaced last May, igniting a media firestorm around Ford. He careened from one scandal to another, becoming a national embarrassment for many Canadians.
