TORONTO (AP) — The Globe and Mail newspaper is reporting that it has viewed a second video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking what appears to be crack cocaine in his sister’s basement.

The national newspaper reported Wednesday night that two Globe reporters viewed a video from a self-professed drug dealer showing Ford taking a drag from a pipe early Saturday morning.

It reports the video is part “of a package of three videos the dealer said was surreptitiously filmed around 1:15 a.m., and which he says he is now selling for “at least six figures.”

The report comes as his lawyer says Ford will take a leave of absence for substance abuse.

Ford is seeking re-election in the Oct. 27 vote.

News reports of the existence of an earlier video of Ford apparently smoking crack first surfaced last May, igniting a media firestorm around Ford.
