Mayor Rob Ford told the city’s integrity commissioner he’s already apologized for racist comments he allegedly made before entering rehab for drugs and alcohol.

Earlier this month, Samuel Getachew filed a complaint with integrity commissioner Janet Leiper claiming racist comments attributed to Ford that have been reported in the media violated council’s code of conduct. Ford had until Tuesday to respond to the complaint from Getachew — a political activist and commentator.
