TORONTO - After months of insisting he had been truthful in the midst of a drug scandal, Toronto's controversial mayor has admitted he lied to the public because he was embarrassed.
Rob Ford made the admission on his own terms, in a YouTube show called "Ford Nation" which was posted online Monday.
"Did I experiment with drugs? Yes I have. Why did I lie? I think everybody in the world has lied, because I was embarrassed," Ford said, while looking directly into the camera.
