TORONTO -- Toronto police aren't commenting on a report they are investigating attempts by associates of Rob Ford to obtain an alleged video purportedly showing the mayor using crack cocaine.
The Toronto Star is reporting two members of Ford's entourage were beating the bushes in the days after media reports surfaced that some journalists had viewed the alleged video.
The Star quotes a witness as saying an occasional driver for the mayor, Alexander "Sandro" Lisi, visited a group of known drug dealers and asked about the people who made the alleged video. Lisi's lawyer has confirmed his client is involved in a police investigation but would not give specifics. The Star story says the mayor's logistics director, David Price, was making phone calls inquiring about the video's whereabouts, but doesn't attribute the information.
