Marion Barry

The FBI caught former Washington (D.C.) Mayor Marion Barry smoking a crack pipe on videotape in 1990. He was forced from office and later imprisoned, only to rise again as a member of the D.C. City Council two years later. Barry, who’s still a council member, is a vocal fan of the ABC series “Scandal.”
