While the media continues to wait for confirmation by the Ford family that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is, indeed, in rehab,the Toronto Sun has released another damning video of Ford in a drunken rant. The Sun reports that the video was shot on April 27th, the day after two other videos of Ford smoking crack cocaine and making sexist and homophobic comments Toronto mayoral candidate Karen Stintz were recorded.

The transcript of the most recent video, below, via the Sun:


FORD: "No one better f---with me. I'm going to kick you in the f---ing head ... I'll knock you out, pa-pow! (making punching gestures), you b------, you b------... bro, bro."

PATRON: This round of tequila ...

FORD: Jack, Jack Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack (Daniels?), Jack, sweetheart. Jack.

WOMAN: And it's last call.

FORD: I'm nodding here. I'm in f---ing divorce and going to the f---ing doghouse and going in a hotel. (Inaudible) I don't know what to say.

Ford, who announced a leave of absence April 30 on account of his issues with substance abuse, has not seen seen since last Thursday, when he withdrew his application to enter the U.S. border. His brother and Toronto council member Doug Ford told the National Post that “statement that will qualify that Rob has been under the care of medical supervision” will be released shortly.

One source told the Sun, however, that Ford “was at the clinic until three nights ago and now has been taken back."
