File: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is surrounded by the media as he leaves his office at Toronto City Hall on November 15, 2013.

More outrageous video of Toronto's mayor Rob Ford has surfaced. This time he’s seen in a Steak Queen restaurant babbling and cursing about the city's police chief, while attempting a Jamaican accent.

Last November, Ford admitted he'd smoked crack, months after video of him with a crack pipe surfaced.

Toronto's city council took away most of his power as mayor a couple of months ago, but he's refused to step down or enter rehab, and has vowed to run again in October.
