Rob Ford Rehab -- Toronto 'Crack Mayor' Getting Treatment After Drunken Rant

Breaking News

Party's over for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford ... who says he is going to get treatment to "deal with his issues" -- even though he's right in the middle of a re-election campaign.

Ford's decision comes just days after a Toronto bar patron recorded him ranting and cussing about a political opponent on Monday night. The Mayor was reportedly heard saying he'd like to "f****** jam her."

Ford told a Toronto columnist he is "ready to take a break" and "get help."

The mayor was not specific about what kind of treatment -- inpatient or outpatient -- he would be getting. As for the campaign ... he said his team is urging him to stay in the race.

Two months ago Ford was raging at Mardi Gras ... then came to L.A. for the Oscars ... and then swore he was hanging up his party hat.
