The D.C. Council on Tuesday preliminarily approved a plan to erect an 8-foot-tall bronze statue outside city hall in Barry’s honor, placing a likeness of the District’s most famous local politician on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, a couple of blocks from the White House and on one of the city’s best-known boulevards.
Barry was twice elected, once before being video taped honking on a crack pipe with a hooker in a sleazy DC motel room, and elected again after a 6 month stretch in federal prison for three felony counts of perjury, 10 counts of drug possession, and one misdemeanor count of conspiracy to possess coc aine. This my friends is what left considers a hero worthy of a memorial statue......
