TORONTO — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford kept quiet Thursday about a civil lawsuit against him alleging he orchestrated a jailhouse beating.

In an interview with a Washington, D.C., radio station, Ford refused to address the allegations -- which have yet to be proven in court -- for a second day in a row.

"You know what, guys? I can't talk about it — it is all before the courts and that's all I've got to say," Ford told The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan. "I can't say anything."

Ford agreed the ongoing controversies make him "crazy."

"What are you going to do? You've just got to focus on saving taxpayers' money and work out," he said.

One of the hosts commented on how despite all the scandals, nothing seems to get Ford down or affect him.

"No, never. We're going to win the next election. I just can't wait until Oct. 27," Ford said. "I let my record speak for itself. If they want to get personal, let them get personal, but people think with their pocketbooks."

The mayor also refused to answer questions later at City Hall about the lawsuit.

Coun. Joe Mihevc said most councillors don't know whether the allegations are "credible or incredible."
