    How is this guy real? According to police documents published by CTV News on Wednesday, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may have lost his cellphone at a crack house a month before video of him smoking the drug hit the Internet. While wiretapping cellphone conversations during a drug-trafficking investigation, police overheard suggestions that Ford's phone had been stolen from the crack house, contradicting Ford's story about losing his phone at a community event. An alleged gangster was also overheard being ordered to go to the house because "Rob Ford wants some drugs." He was later heard saying that Ford had been "smoking his rocks" that day at the house.
