TORONTO – A newly-released security report says Toronto Mayor Rob Ford "appeared intoxicated" and invited an unidentified woman into his office for an hour just days before he entered rehab.
The City Hall report, released Friday after a freedom of information request, says Ford was "slurring his words, red in the face, and sweating profusely" when he asked a security guard to "bring her up" on April 21. The report says the woman left after an hour.
Ford remains in rehab for alcohol addiction after announcing in April that he was seeking treatment after another video surfaced that apparently showed him smoking crack.
Ford admitted last year after reports of a similar video that he had smoked crack in a "drunken stupor." The City Council stripped him of most of his powers.
