E-mails Shed New Light On Barry Contract With Ex
Newly released e-mails show that D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) and his staff criticized work performed by his then-girlfriend, Donna Watts-Brighthaupt, earlier this year, and that her ex-husband accused Barry of falsifying contract documents in an angry message earlier this year.
Barry's complaints included Watts-Brighthaupt's spelling, grammar, tendency to fall behind schedule and failure to be available during business hours. The e-mails appear to confirm that Barry and Watts-Brighthaupt traveled together to Las Vegas and Memphis. Though the city paid for Barry's airfare, the government did not foot the bill for Watts-Brighthaupt, and did not pay for a $736 spa visit at the Paris hotel during their May trip to Las Vegas, travel records show.
