Councilman Marion Barry was hospitalized at Howard University Hospital early this morning, according to WaPo. He was taken in for dehydration. It’s unfortunate that this comes roughly 12 hours after his controversial remarks about Chancellor Rhee, but we certainly do hope the Councilman and former DC mayor is OK.
Barry will be missing the city council meeting today where the much talked about legislation allowing gay marriage in the District will be introduced. Barry, who had previously been a supporter of gay rights, has fallen out of favor because of his stances earlier this year.
(And I promise this is the end of us acting like the Marion Barry News Network. For now.)
