Toronto's Mayor Rob Ford is one of many mayors behaving badly

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has admitted he's smoked crack cocaine, likely during one of his "drunken stupors," he says.

Pressure is growing for him to resign, but Ford is not backing down. He plans to run for re-election.

So, can his career survive? He isn't the first mayor caught behaving badly.

Tom Foreman reports for OutFront.

    "But it’s all the same deal, isn’t it? I mean, the intellectual premise is that the only thing that really matters about our lives are the distinctions we can draw. Indeed, one of the crassest elements of modern culture, all these sort of talk shows, and even a lot of political journalism that’s sort of focused on this shallow judgmentalism. They try to define everybody down by the worst moment in their lives, and it all is about well, no matter whatever’s wrong with me, I’m not that." (WJC)
