Rob Ford Auctions Tie He Wore When He Admitted Smoking Crack

TORONTO - Rob Ford has more items up for auction on eBay, including what appears to be the tie he wore on Nov. 5, 2013, when he admitted to smoking crack cocaine.

The former mayor of Toronto has been auctioning off some of his belongings this month, saying 10 per cent of the proceeds will go to research and care facilities for liposarcoma, the form of cancer he was diagnosed with last year.

Ford dropped his bid for re-election after the cancer diagnosis and ran successfully instead for city council.

His assistant has said Ford is selling items on eBay as part of a spring cleaning, but hasn't said what is being done with the rest of the funds raised.

Among the latest items put up for auction by Ford is the tie, which he describes as the "only one of these in existence." It features logos from NFL teams past and present.

Ford became internationally notorious when he admitted having smoked crack cocaine, "probably in one of my drunken stupors," while apologizing and insisting he was not an addict.

Other items up for auction include a Saskatchewan Roughriders jersey and patterned pants he was photographed wearing on a shopping trip to Wal-Mart.

The listings say the items come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Ford.
