There Are Turkeys and Then There Are Turkeys


For John, BLUFOne should always be suspicious of Mayor Marion Barry.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Former DC Mayor and current City Councilor Marion Barry gave away $40,000 worth of turkeys to his constituents in Ward 8 this year.

For those of you who think only those mean, evil Republicans expect to see an ID, Mayor Barry was demanding a photo ID from all his constituents who received a turkey.

There was a question as to the source of the money to pay for all those turkeys, but Mayor Barry turned away the question.

A DC area resident suggested the question wasn't where the $40K came from, but if there was another $40K that went into Mayor Barry's pocket.  Such are our expectations of the man who famously exclaimed to Federal Law Enforcement Officers "The 'woman' set me up".

Well, technically his protest was based on fact, but as usual, the MSM screwed up the story. The "woman" did set Marion up.....she set up the lines of the delicious white powder that Marion sported on the outer skin of his nostrils.....in the vernacular of the drug world, she gave him a "setup."

Marion Barry is one of the icons of the history of the swamp known as DC
