Marion Barry: “I ain’t got nothing to do with Rob Ford”
—Washington D.C. councilmember Marion Barry, speaking to TMZ. In 1990, while mayor of the city, Barry was convicted of cocaine possession after the FBI and local police taped him smoking crack. So there you have it: even D.C.’s crack-smoking mayor wants nothing to do with Rob Ford (who can’t match his record, but will certainly try). This isn’t the first time Barry has been asked to comment on Toronto’s situation.
