Ford literally tackled a councilwoman.
Toronto's City Council descended into chaos on Monday afternoon during a debate about stripping Mayor Rob Ford of most of his remaining powers following a string of scandals, including his admission to smoking crack cocaine, abusing alcohol and acknowledgment of a leaked video of Ford threatening to kill a man.
In the meeting, Ford and his brother Doug, a council member, mocked critics, with Councillor Ford calling them "scumbags." In the midst of some "angry exchanges," Rob Ford then rushed council member Pam McConnell, who regained composure and attempted to calm Ford down.
On Fox News on Sunday, the mayor apologized for his erratic behavior and announced that he is "seeking professional help," though he denies that he has an addiction problem. Ford also announced aspirations to run for prime minister of Canada. [Emphases mine]
