TGIF: Bottoms up with the D.C. edition! (Bonus EyeHandy Video)

TGIF this week is dedicated to a mystery politician!

This may not be very difficult to figure out, but here are the clues:

This man has served time for cocaine possession after being videotaped smoking crack, was sentenced to probation for tax issues, was arrested for stalking and was front and center when Congress took control of D.C. government due to fiscal mismanagement.

But, as we have recently witnessed with high-ranking government employees such as Tim Geithner and Charlie Rangel, past personal indiscretions including tax evasion, did not have have not necessarily disqualified anyone from public service!

Who is this mystery politician?

Who is this man and for TGIF, what would the drink of choice be?

If you guessed Marion Barry, a man who served 4 terms as D.C. mayor and was elected to the city council fromWard 8 in 2004 and 2008 after his legal troubles and who will be running for reelection again this year, you are absolutely correct.

And for this TGIF segment of pairing a politician with a namesake drink, for Marion Barry the imbibition of choice is .......

The Dirty Hooker and if you are so inclined, chase it down with a glass of coke.

Dirty Hooker

1/2 ounce (15 mL) Jagermeister, 1/2 ounce (15 mL) raspberry Sour Puss in a shot glass.
