Yet another video has emerged that threatens to embarrass Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, but given the subject matter of his previous work, this one may end up being more amusing than scandalous. In the video, posted by The Toronto Star on Thursday, an agitated and excitable Ford appears to be angry at an unidentified person, who he apparently wants to fight. While the context of the video is totally unclear, Ford suggests he needs "15 minutes" alone with the person, "no holds barred," saying “I’m gonna kill that fucking guy. I’m telling you, it’s first-degree murder... he dies or die," adding later, "I need f---ing 10 minutes to make sure he's dead."
The Toronto Sun initially published only a five-second clip taken from the longer video, that appears to show Ford engaged in angry rant in someone's living room. The Sun said that the clip was provided to them by a third party attempting to sell them the entire clip, allegedly shot on a cell phone. Sun reporter Joe Warmington says his paper did not buy it, but he was told by the seller that another media company had "agreed to obtain the video." It appears that company is The Star, which published the full one-minute video shortly thereafter.
