TORONTO — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his brother, a city councilor, are launching a YouTube series called “Ford Nation”

Ford asks people to “please judge me on my record, not my personal life” in a preview posted Thursday.

Ford last year made international headlines when he admitted to having smoked crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor. He’s drawn attention for repeated erratic behavior, but he has resisted pressure to step down and is seeking re-election.

Ford’s office says the show will debut Monday.
