Marion Barry: A Legacy of No Damn Good

In Uncategorized on March 3, 2010 at 2:42 am

How appropriate! On the eve of the DC marriage equality bill, same-sex couples will be able to apply for marriage licenses starting tomorrow morning, Marion Barry, who voted against the marriage bill, was censured and his case referred to the US Attorney’s office to pursue criminal charges.

Twenty years since he went to prison for drug possession, former D.C. mayor Marion Barry was punished again for breaking the law on Tuesday, this time for illegally steering city contracts to his friends and his girlfriend.

Despite having admitted to steering the contracts, Barry railed against his colleagues Tuesday, calling Bennett’s report inaccurate.

Depending upon the outcome of the U.S. Attorney’s investigation, Barry could face a second round in the slammer.
