Toronto Mayor Rob Ford displays a milk moustache as he takes part in voting with city council members in Toronto on Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013.  Ford denied Thursday that he pressured a female staffer for oral sex, in an obscenity-laced statement on live television in which he also threatened to take legal action against former staffers who spoke to police about his drinking and drug use.  The mayor, who admitted last week to smoking crack, later announced he was getting professional help.
