Jon Stewart: Is Mayor Rob Ford Smoking Crack to Clean Up Toronto? (Video)

Mayor may be getting crack of the streets by putting it in his lungs, Stewart says

Jon Stewart has a unique theory about allegations that Toronto Mayor was caught on video smoking crack: Maybe he was just smoking it to get it off the streets.

Reporters for Gawker and the Toronto Sun say they have seen a video in which the conservative mayor appears to be smoking from a crack pipe. Ford's lawyer says it's impossible to tell what the mayor is smoking.

But Stewart suggested another defense on Tuesday's "Daily Show."

"Hey! Don't judge him," Stewart said. "Maybe he's cleaning up the city by smoking all the crack in it. You're next, prostitution rings!"
