Court Docs: Toronto Mayor Tried Obtaining Tape

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may have offered 5 grand and a car to suspected drug dealers in exchange for a tape that appears to show him smoking crack.
TORONTO (AP) -- New court documents say Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may have offered $5,000 and a car to suspected drug dealers in exchange for a tape that appears to show him smoking crack.

The information is contained in police wiretaps of gang members who spoke about delivering drugs to Ford and having pictures of him using drugs. One of the gang members is heard talking to another, saying he rejected the offer for the tape and planned to meet the mayor and ask for "150," meaning $150,000.

Ford has admitted smoking crack while in a "drunken stupor" last year.

On one wire tape on April 20 a gang member is heard saying "Rob Ford was smoking his rocks today."

A smiling Ford laughed and ignored questions as he left his office Wednesday.
