Marion Barry’s Car Stolen!

Ward 8 D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry has had a run of bad luck lately.

First, a judge rules that a company he bought campaign materials from in 2008 could  garnish his wages because of a past due bill.

And now, the shiny 2002 Jaguar he cruises around in has been stolen. According to a crime report, the car was parked on the 4600 block of Livingston Road SE when it was swiped on Dec. 11. Barry reported the theft to police. He apparently left the keys inside.

Update: Barry has his car back. The Jaguar was recovered by MPD in the 4000 block of 3rd Street SE. No arrest has been made.

    What's the relationship between how much he owes the company and how much he would have gotten from insurance had the car not been recovered? Poor bama just got no luck ('cept the good years from 68 - 99 minus the jail years).

  • Typical DC BS

    Getting forgetful in his old age.

    @DCexpat: I was wondering the same thing! Wonder what will happen once he finds out he's upside down on that car!


    this is a stage event 4 Barry's reallity T V show.
