Marion Barry takes the dive again
Gun Week also reports that former DC mayor Marion Barry has taken a second felony dive (the first being for cocaine in the 1990s). This time he plead out to income tax evasion .... he failed to file returns for five years during which his income was estimated at over half a million, and the amount he stiffed IRS was estimated at around $195,000.
Being well connected politically must be nice. Even tho he had a prior, he was allowed to plead to misdemeanor, and he got probation, no jail, and no fine.
Here's a WashPo article on it, noting that his salary as a city councilman is being garnished to pay a judgment awarded to a woman who said he assaulted and exposed himself to her.
Washington DC: too small for a state, too big for an asylum.
Gateway Pundit has a post on it -- "And Barry Makes Six." Actually, Florida state Senator Gary Siplin, NRA F-rated, makes seven. Hmm.. and Robert C. Janiszewski, the NJ state chairman for Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign, makes eight.
