In a recently aired episode of Ford brothers’ new media show, Ford Nation, Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford finally confessed that he had lied about his drug problem last year. The confession has brought extraordinary attention to the Ford brothers’ return to media with their YouTube debut of Ford Nation.
Mayor Ford’s brother, Doug Ford, read an email from “Sandra in Bangkok,” during a segment called “Rob Ford comes clean,” in response to which the mayor replied that “A) I do not have a substance abuse problem.” He elaborated saying “did I experiment with drugs? Yes I have. Why did I lie? I think because… everyone in the world has lied. I was embarrassed.” He added “I didn’t want to tell the truth. That’s the only answer I can give. I’m as straightforward as can be. I’m not a drug addict. I don’t use drugs. Have I in the past? Yes.” Previously, Mr. Ford alleged that he was not asked the right question about his drug use or the crack video.
