Former Crack-Smoking DC Mayor Getting A Statue Erected On Pennsylvania Avenue (Video)

An 8-foot statue of former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry was unveiled on Saturday.

Marion Barry was a controversial mayor who served prison time after he was caught on video smoking crack cocaine in a 1990 FBI sting.

This is the kind of thing I will never understand. Corruption, drug and alcohol abuse, I mean he was on video smoking crack with a prostitute in a hotel room. And this community elevates him to hero status, by erecting a statue. And they want statues of great generals taken down?

Former Washington, D.C. mayor and city council member Marion Barry will have a statue erected in his memory on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Barry, a Democrat, served four terms as mayor of DC from 1979 to 1991 and again from 1995 to 1999. He served several terms as a member of the D.C. City Council and did so until his death in 2014.

Barry rose to national attention after the FBI filmed him in 1990 smoking crack cocaine with a former girlfriend, as part of a sting operation. His defense after being arrested was, “Bitch set me up.”
