Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to Guest on Jimmy Kimmel on Monday
On Monday evening, Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Tune in at 11:35 p.m., ET/10:35 p.m., CT on ABC.
During his political career, Ford has been the subject of a number of personal and work-related controversies and legal proceedings, including a conflict of interest trial that nearly removed him from office. In 2013, he became embroiled in a substance abuse scandal, which was widely reported in the national and international media. Ford initially denied the allegations, but after a 2013 Toronto Police Service gang investigation led to police discovering a video of Ford, he admitted to all of the incidents, including public drunkenness and illegal drug use. Ford admitted to having used crack cocaine "probably in one of my drunken stupors".
