    He seems quite representative of the political take no responsibility culture of corruption. Blame it on society,people out to get him, his parents, anyone but the offender.

    The same mentality that supports Barry is standing in a long line somewhere to pay tribute to another fine balck man....................... Michael Jackson.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    How women find him appealing is beyond me. He's an idiot, too.

    There's an article about his "women" history in today's Washington Post. He gets divorced from one woman and marries the next one within a year (he did this twice). One woman (not his wife) donated a kidney to him when he underwent a transplant last year. WTH?

    Ex-Girlfriend Worked for Barry as a Contractor

    D.C. Council member Marion Barry hired his then-girlfriend as a city contractor two months after they began a relationship that eventually led to Barry's arrest on stalking charges, according to city records.

    Barry (D-Ward 8) notified the council secretary's office in October that his office intended to hire Donna Watts-Brighthaupt as a contractor specializing in "poverty reduction strategies," according to the records reviewed by The Washington Post.

    Watts-Brighthaupt has been paid $15,000, and the secretary's office has a purchase order authorizing payment of an additional $5,000, council officials said.

    Please please please let this amount to something. This jackass needs a good kick in the butt. I am sick of his total lack of ethics and criminal behavior. When will he reap what he sows?

    Never, his constituents love that about him, that he refuses to bow down to 'the man'.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I almost posted in this thread but it seemed like the interest in this subject matter had died down. You're right. These people keep voting the guy in because they likely have lots in common with him. Yes, I know how horrible that sounds, but it's true.

    There will be an investigation into this transaction with this woman. The Washington Post has an editorial today about this and another concern:

    Call in the Prosecutors
    Dubious earmarks add to the case for a criminal investigation of Marion Barry.

    Less than a week after the disclosure that Mr. Barry directed $15,000 to a then-girlfriend, the Washington City Paper reported on Mr. Barry's use of legislative earmarks to fund six nonprofit groups in Ward 8 that apparently are controlled by his staff.
