Marion Barry begins stint as 'national advocate' for welfare reform on Fox Business
D.C. Council member Marion Barry (D-Ward 8) announced yesterday that he planned to become a "national advocate" for welfare reform -- rekindling an issue dear to conservatives that's been pretty much settled as a national issue for 15 years.
How's that going, council member?
Barry appeared today on the Fox Business Network, where he spoke to host Stuart Varney.
"Are you the best person to do this?" asked Varney. "With all due respect, your honor, you disgraced yourself in office and everybody knows it. ... I put it to you, sir: You're not the best example. You're not the best leader in this situation."
"That's your view about it," Barry replied. "The FBI, 20 years ago, set me up, entrapped me. ... That's all behind us now."
