Toronto mayor Rob Ford launches video show 

As if we haven’t had enough of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, the guy has started up his own video series.

Ford and his brother Doug Ford Jr., a member of the Toronto City Council, are launching a YouTube show called “Ford Nation” set to debut Monday, The Associated Press reports.

The show will feature “unfiltered” talk, and viewers may submit questions to the mayor of Canada’s largest city. Ford is seeking re-election, unbelievably.

On Thursday, Ford, who has admitted to smoking crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor, asked people to, “Please judge me on my record, not my personal life.”

The upcoming Web series apparently isn’t Ford’s first venture into broadcasting. Both a “Ford Nation” radio show and “Ford Nation” TV show were scrapped, the latter due to complaints that it took more than 15 hours to shoot and edit.
