District of Columbia Councilman Marion Barry found himself mired in more political, legal and personal drama Sunday after his arrest late Saturday on charges that he was stalking a female companion.
Barry's latest run-in with the law centers on his relationship with political consultant Donna Watts-Brighthaupt, who alleges that he continues to approach her even though they split up a few months ago…
Barry, 73, was charged with one count of "misdemeanor stalking," said Sgt. David Schlosser, a Park Police spokesman.
Misdemeanor stalking? Nice try, Mr. Barry. Normally, that'd be worth me putting at least a little bit of thought into this post and making a cursory attempt to come up with a decent joke.
But, sadly, you were batting way out of your league this weekend. As it stands, I'm not even putting the effort in to search for an actual picture of you.
Keep at it, though. You'll hit gold eventually. I'm sure of it.
