Former DC Mayor and current Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry, 73, was arrested over the weekend for misdemeanor stalking. He is accused of following a 40-year-old "female acquaintance" who he had been assisting financially. How someone currently on probation for federal tax evasion has bucks to spare is beyond me.
Barry has proclaimed his innocence.
Recently, Barry was one of Washington DC's loudest and angriest voices in opposition of marriage equality, saying, "I am a politician who's moral." Not so recently (1990), he was caught on video smoking crack, leading to his career-defining quote, "The bitch set me up."
Might the same line be recycled soon in reference to the latest in his long line of legal disasters?
