Toronto mayor appears on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live’

– Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is laughing off Jimmy Kimmel’s suggestion that he get help for his drinking.

Ford appeared Monday on the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” late night TV talk show in Los Angeles. Kimmel told Ford that if he’s an alcoholic, and drinking enough that he would try crack cocaine in his 40s, “and you don’t remember it, maybe that’s something that you might want to think about, like talking to somebody.”

Ford shot back his head and laughed before saying he “wasn’t elected to be perfect.”

Ford last year made international headlines when he acknowledged having smoked crack while in a drunken stupor. He continues to draw attention for his erratic behavior, but has resisted pressure to step down and is seeking re-election.
