Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is back at it again.

Despite promising sobriety late last year after he finally admitted to smoking crack while under the influence of alcohol, the 44-year-old politician was caught on camera doing his best impersonation of a Jamaican man at a steakhouse on Monday night.

“It’s how I speak with some of my friends,” he told reporters on Tuesday, according to NBC News.

He also admitted he had been boozing “a little bit,” but denied using any drugs.

“I was with some friends and what I do in my personal life with my personal friends, that’s up to me,” Ford said. “It really has nothing to do with you guys.”

Ford’s statements came after his brother, Doug Ford, told reporters that the YouTube video (above) must be old.

“Since the beginning of November, he hasn’t taken a drink,” he said. “It didn’t happen last night.”

Ford, who is running for re-election, has denied substance abuse problems since a video of him smoking crack emerged last May, but has promised constituents he is seriously considering another problem: His weight.

Given the location of his most recent incident, it appears he has fallen off that wagon, too. Or Monday was a cheat day.
