Ford Denies Smoking Crack

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford "turned down three chances on Friday to address the specifics of media reports about a video in which he appears to smoke crack cocaine and utter an anti-gay slur," the Toronto Star reports.

The mayor later told reporters that the allegations were "absolutely not true" and "ridiculous." At city hall later, he emerged from his office to offer only a brief statement.

Said Ford: "Anyways, like I said this morning, these allegations are ridiculous, another story with respect to the Toronto Star going after me, and that's all I have to say."
