Wednesday, documents from the police in Toronto revealed that Mayor Rob Ford allegedly tried to buy the video of him smoking crack for $5,000. Sources said that two men allegedly attempted to sell it to Rob Ford and he allegedly attempted to buy it so it would not be released to the public.

According to the Huffington Post:

The allegation is contained in an unredacted version of an Information to Obtain (ITO) in the drug-trafficking investigation of Ford's sometimes-driver and friend Alexander Lisi. The documents were prepared in order to obtain search warrants related to the Lisi case.

Wednesday, summaries of police wiretaps from the investigation were released. Those summaries contain details of a conversation between Mohamed Siad, who police believe was involved in trying to broker a deal to sell the tape, and Siyadin Abdi, who placed a call to Ford's office on March 18, 2013.

Abdi allegedly explains that he was offered $5,000 and a car, to which Siad allegedly says that he will "meet with him and ask for 150."

Little has been heard from Rob Ford over the last few weeks.

Rob Ford, 44, has been a media nightmare for the Toronto City Council over the last few months. He was questioned repeatedly about drug use and denied the charges…until videos surfaced showing the Mayor using crack cocaine. Ford has refused to step down and has made matters worse by calling numerous press conferences and said things that he later had to call another press conference to apologize for. See the links below for the full story.

A few weeks ago, a staff employee had made allegations that Rob Ford wanted to have oral sex with her. Ford made several inappropriate comments about oral sex on live TV. For more on that story, click here.
