A new guide to DC Scandals lists OUR OWN WESTIN HOTEL as site of Mayor for Life Marion Barry’s debut on the FBI’s reality show America’s Got Crack!
The Hotel was then known as The Vista Hotel – Now, The Westin. The room was and is No. 727. Although as Hizzonor explained “b@tch set me up,” the charges didn’t stick. Mr. Barry is currently City Councilman from Ward 8.
[As a Bostonian I understand this. My grandparents elected Mayor Curley to Congress – while a resident of Danbury Federal Prison. “He may be a crook – but he was OUR crook” as Grampa Keough explained]. Loyalty.
