Want a Marion Barry Fix?

If you’re itching to hear what former Washington Mayor and current City Council Member Marion Barry is up to these days, you’re in luck because WaPo City Hall reporter Tim Craig has been catching up with him. He has the pictures and the details that Barry is having car troubles he says were the result of a hit and run.

“Marion Barry drives up to JAWB with car bumber off, dragging down street. He says it was hit and run,” Craig reported on Twitter some three hours ago. He also wrote, compassionately, “Barry’s car was also heavily, heavily keyed. I felt bad. Major, major vandalism to it — seems separate from ‘hit and run’.”

TBD “On Foot” reporter John Hendel is also all over this story. It’s clear that he, too, feels for Barry and that the car shows “signs of more damage than a  hit and run would suggest. Who knows. But what a city we live in, right? How weird does all that sound. Poor guy. Let’s hope he fixes his car soon.”
