Ever feel like politicians are getting away with more these days than they ever have before? Comparatively however, that’s probably not true. Case in point is Marion Barry. The former mayor of Washington D.C. has been breaking the law in almost every way imaginable ever since he took office in 1979.
Well, get ready! A film about the life of Washington DC’s most famous native is in the works. And just wait until you hear who’s been pegged to play the lead role.
MRCTV gives you a rundown of Barry’s sordid history and what to expect from the upcoming film.
It just goes to show you that while people love to complain about how awful their politicians are, sometimes they go crawling back to them like an abused spouse.
