From WashingtonTimes.com:

D.C. Council member Marion Barry, the Ward 8 Democrat who is a former mayor of Washington, violated city law by awarding a $15,000 contract to his then-girlfriend, according to findings in an independent investigation released Tuesday.

The seven-page summary by attorney Robert S. Bennett states Mr. Barry’s original proposal was for Donna Watts-Brighthaupt to write a proposal for a program titled “Emerging Leaders of Ward Eight.” When the city rejected the proposal because it appeared “political in nature,” the report states, Mr. Barry won approval for one on poverty, then had Ms. Brighthaupt work on the original proposal.

In addition, the report says Mr. Barry, 73, on several occasions delivered checks to Ms. Brighthaupt, accompanied her to the bank to cash the checks and then made her give him some of the money.
