Rob Ford votes against honouring Mandela, congratulating Olympians
Toronto mayor the only one to vote against the motions, said he hit the wrong button
Rob Ford had an oops moment Wednesday when he voted against city council motions on naming a Toronto street in honour of Nelson Mandela and congratulating Canada's Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
The controversial Toronto mayor — who was the only one to vote against the motions — later claimed he hit the wrong voting button in both cases and asked for a re-vote.
The council meeting briefly debated Ford's call but then moved on to other business.
There was no re-vote.
Ford, who is running for re-election, has been embroiled in a number of scandals over the past year which have made him something of an international celebrity.
The mayor is also the subject of an ongoing police investigation during which he was photographed urinating in public.
