Marion Barry, you remember him right? The former mayor of D.C. that was caught on video smoking crack with a “friend.” Well, he’s made a tremendous return to the city’s politics and is still a beloved member of the city. The former mayor currently serves as a city council member and he had an important vote to make this week…but he got a little confused.
The city council had to vote on recognizing same sex marriages and they gave a unanimous vote of yes until Barry woke up. Then, it was as though he said, “Wait a minute! What was that again?” It appears he didn’t know whether a vote of yes meant he was for or against same sex marriage and the vote was unanimous for same sex marriage, When he asked for a “do-over” everyone was fine with it and it ignited a debate over the vote.
