Toronto Mayor Admits 'Mistakes'

After months of bombshell headlines alleging crack cocaine abuse and erratic behavior, it was what Toronto Mayor Rob Ford had to say on his radio show Sunday that had everyone listening.

Mayor Ford said, "Friends, I'm the first one to admit I am not perfect. I have made mistakes. I have made mistakes, and all I can do right now is apologize for the mistakes."

In a news conference last Thursday, Toronto's police chief said they have video of what appears to be the Mayor smoking from a glass pipe.

Ford has repeatedly denied using crack since the allegations surfaced in May. On Sunday, he said that video should be made public:

"Whatever this video shows, folks, Toronto residents deserve to see it, and people need to judge for themselves what they see on this video."

Though Ford calls for the video to be released, he says he won't resign.
