Mayor Barry Resigns, Pleads Guilty To Felony Theft
It's kind of an interesting story. Arguably she misused public funds to carry on an affair, although the amount seems to pale in comparison to amounts of money misused at the federal level with nobody held accountable in a criminal way.
Meanwhile, in other Mayor Barry news:
Statue of Marion Barry, controversial former mayor, unveiled in Washington
On Saturday, an 8-foot-high bronze statue of former Mayor Marion Barry was unveiled on Pennsylvania Avenue in the nation’s capital, just blocks from the White House.
The statue, designed by artist Steven Weitzman, was ordered by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Washington's Fox 5 reported. The estimated $250,000 cost was covered by a combination of public and private funds, the Washington Business Journal reported.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
