WASHINGTON — D.C. Councilman Marion Barry, who for years has tested the patience of the electorate and federal prosecutors alike, finally filed his 2007 tax return Tuesday, WRC-TV in Washington reported.
The stations also said Barry, who is still beloved in certain sections of the city, “is threatening to file his 2008 taxes next week, according to a representative for the former mayor.”
Federal prosecutors recently filed court papers asking that Barry get thrown in the slammer for failing to pay his taxes. The station reported that he was on probation for failing to file on time in the past and had failed to file on time in eight of the past nine years.
Barry is hoping that between filing the latest taxes, and his ailments — he is awaiting a kidney transplant — the feds will back off  and allow him to remain a free man.
Stay tuned. The man has a knack for getting in trouble.
