Mayors: D.C.'s Marion Barry, Jr.
It's become a legendary tale in politics: Marion Barry, Jr., a civil rights activist turned D.C. mayor, was recorded smoking crack cocaine and busted by the Feds. Even six months in federal prison couldn't keep Barry down -- he was subsequently elected to the city council, and eventually became mayor again. He's currently a city councilman in the 8th Ward.
