IFWT_MARION

Uh Oh! Former Mayor known for crack scandal died today. Marion Barry, of Washington D.C. was announced dead at 78 years old on Sunday morning. Barry was known for the crack scandal that he surpassed in the midst of his term in the year 1990.

The incident that occurred during his tenure could’ve broken his career, however, getting caught in a hotel room smoking crack with an estranged woman wasn’t the “end all, be all” for the Mayor. His infamous phrase when the FBI barged in was, “She set me up,” and from then on Marion Barry was made a laughing stock. At the time, every comedy skit referenced the quote. Barry completed his time in prison for the irresponsible act, and was able to serve another term as Mayor!

In all, Barry served 4 terms. He will always be known as the politician who fell hard, yet got back up.

Unfortunately the cause of death has not yet been revealed. R.I.P Marion Barry. Stay tuned for more information. Below is the video from 1990, when Barry was arrested for drug possession.
