Marion "Bitch set me up" Barry
Back in 1999, New York City's Downtown Athletic Club awarded Ron Dayne the Heisman Trophy. The University of Wisconsin running back didn't have the greatest season of his career and probably didn't have the type of season that normally wins a player the award for best player in college football. However, that year Ron Dayne broke the NCAA record for most yards gained by a running back in his career. So, Dyane being awarded the Heisman that year was sort of a lifetime achievement award.

This Intershame is like that.

CNN is reporting Barry's latest run-in with trouble...

On July 4, the U.S. Park Police arrested Barry and charged him with misdemeanor stalking.

About 8:45 p.m. in Anacostia Park, a Washington woman flagged down a Park Police officer on patrol and pointed to Barry, who was in another car. The woman said Barry was stalking her, Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser said.


This latest digression while Intershameful, barely registers on Barry's fail-o-meter. Here's a run down of the former Washington D.C. mayor's past:

January, 1990 - Arrested for cocaine possession after an undercover FBI operation reveals Barry smoking crack on surveillance cameras. Serves six months in prison.

December, 2006 - Cited for operating a vehicle with a suspended licence.

October, 2005 - Pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from an IRS investigation into his 2005 tax returns.

March, 2006 - Sentenced to three years probation after a court-ordered drug test from the tax-evasion arrest revealed Barry was using cocain.

Now Marion Barry can add "Stalker" to his resume.

Admittedly, the quantity of Barry's fuck-ups isn't all that impressive, but the quality is outstanding. Especially that first one. When you're a sitting mayor and you get caught on grainy black and white surveillance cameras taking hits from a crack pipe in between attempts to fondle some ex-model that wants nothing to do with you and when the arresting officers break the hotel door down to take you into custody, the only comment you can muster is, "Bitch set me up. . . . I shouldn't have come up here. . . . Goddamn bitch" - that's just Intershame gold.
