Word from Channel 4 (NBC)  in the DC area

D.C. councilman and former mayor Marion Barry was arrested Saturday night and charged with stalking a woman, police said.

The United States Park Police said Barry was arrested in Washington after a woman flagged down an officer and complained that Barry was stalking her.

Barry was charged with misdemeanor stalking and released.

Ward eight, the area that keeps returning this turkey to the council, might eventually get the message.

But, I doubt it.

Let’s face it, they been returning and for so long, because he’s been busy promising everybody everything.  As long as it comes out of somebody else’s dime, what do the denizens of Ward eight care? Corruption? I don’t care, so long as I get my government cheese.

The thing that is remarkable about this, is that nobody’s noticed Barry is emblematic with what has gone wrong with our government the last 30 years or so.  You can drop him in the politics, and the outcome of that politics, in any major city in America, and he’d fit right in.  For example, Detroit.  Philadelphia leaps to mind.  And Atlanta.  East Saint Louis. New Orleans.

You get the idea. Where else but in heavily Democrat party dominated, union dominated  districts, could somebody have a record the likes of Marion Barry, and say out of jail, much less retain elective office?
