Ex-Mayor Barry big winner in nation's capital: "Marion Barry, the former mayor who was videotaped by the FBI smoking crack and wound up in jail, resurrected his political career for a second time Tuesday. Residents of one of the District of Columbia's poorest sections picked Barry to be their new councilman.

'Oh, my God!' Barry exclaimed when told of his lopsided win. The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics reported that Barry, a Democrat, won 95 percent of the vote against a token Republican opponent. 'We're going to be the best ward in the city, we're going to turn things around,' Barry promised.

Barry, 68, served six months in prison for a federal drug conviction, then went on to win the same Ward 8 seat in southeast Washington in 1992. That led to a fourth term as mayor, which he won in 1994. Barry did not seek re-election in 1998."
