Marion Barry: Mary Cheh Has “Great Femininity”

According to a tipster privy to a D.C. Council hearing today, Ward 8 Councilmember Marion Barry had this to say about Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh: "Ms. Cheh you are attractive, glamorous, and have great femininity." Uh—I guess it beats getting called an "angry woman" and then receiving a bouquet of flowers for your trouble.

    Don't turn your back on him, Mary Cheh. He's got a reputation.....

    This guy is just pathetic.

    From anyone else, it would be a compliment. From Marion's just EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

    Anita: I don't know...I agree on his particular "ew" factor but I don't want my glamor or attractiveness to come up in a professional setting by anyone really. Kinda detracts from what I'm actually doing/saying.

    What a coincidence! Those are all the qualifications that I list on my resume too!

    When you have a tipster as your source of info, who needs other sources of confirmation? The tipster should more then adequately suffice.
