Marion Barry Should Go

The incident marks Barry's third run-in with the Park Police since his six-month jail term on misdemeanor drug charges in 1992.

In 2002, Park Police said that they found traces of marijuana and crack cocaine in his car. Barry said the drugs were planted, and charges were not filed. In 2006, Park Police cited Barry for operating a vehicle on a suspended license after he was pulled over for driving too slowly.

The same year, Barry was sentenced to three years of probation for not submitting federal and D.C. tax returns. In May, Barry's probation was extended by two years after prosecutors argued that he also failed to file his 2007 taxes on time.

This former mayor, (and now council member)had enough chances. He should go.
