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.

Read here to see the final vote.
