Toronto’s Mayor Rob Ford has decided to enter rehab to get “help with his issues,” even though he’s in the middle of a re-election campaign.

Ford’s decision comes just days after a Toronto bar patron recorded him ranting and cussing about a political opponent on Monday night. The Mayor was reportedly heard saying he’d like to “f****** jam her.”

Ford told a Toronto columnist he is “ready to take a break” and “get help.” 

The mayor was not specific about what kind of treatment — inpatient or outpatient — he would be getting. As for the campaign … he said his team is urging him to stay in the race.

Two months ago Ford was raging at Mardi Gras … then came to L.A. for the Oscars … and then swore he was hanging up his party hat.
