Ford Halts Campaign to 'Get Help'

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford tells the Toronto Sun that he is "ready to take a break" from the mayoral election campaign to "go get help."

"The decision to immediately step away from the campaign -- while staying on the ballot -- comes after... a new raunchy audio recording of Ford ranting and swearing [which] captures the mayor being unruly as he's ordering booze, complaining about his wife Renata and making lewd comments about mayoral contender Karen Stintz."

If that's not enough, the Globe and Mail reports a second video of Ford "smoking what has been described as crack-cocaine by a self-professed drug dealer was secretly filmed in his sister's basement early Saturday morning."

Gawker has still shots from the new video.
