“Crack-smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford rocked out in a gospel church Sunday, shaking his portly body as worshipers sang and shouted, “Hallelujah.”
It was unclear if the embattled Ford went to the West Toronto Church of God to seek redemption, but one congregant suggested the politician was on more than a spiritual high.
“Man smells like ganja,” churchgoer Jamal Lewis posted on Twitter along with a photo of himself and a female congregant posing with a sweat-soaked Ford after church.
A video of Ford at the foot-stomping service popped up on YouTube Sunday night. Dressed in a dark suit and tie, Ford stood on the altar of the predominantly black church, dancing and waving his hands at people in the audience.
In November, Ford, 49, admitted smoking crack cocaine during “one of my drunken stupors.”
He was subsequently stripped of most of his mayoral powers by the Toronto City Council when he refused to resign.
Ford’s church appearance came just days after supporters launched a website to raise $50,000 to help the mayor pay his legal bills.
“It’s time for Torontonians to stand up and say enough is enough. We now have to stand against these special interest bullies and show them that this harassment has to stop,” the fundraising page reads.”
