Marion Barry

The colorful former Washington, D.C., mayor is among the most infamous politicians who've been tainted by scandal and lived to give another re-election victory speech. After being busted for smoking crack cocaine and serving a short prison term, Barry was elected to the D.C. city council in 1992 and re-elected mayor in 1994. He currently serves as a D.C. council member.
