Is Marion Barry Angling for a Cabinet Appointment?

Washington Post:  Prosecutors Want Barry Jailed Over Tax Returns, by Del Quentin Wilber:

For the second time in two years, frustrated federal prosecutors took aim at Marion Barry's chronic failure to file his tax returns and urged a judge to put him in jail.

The move by authorities is the latest act in a long-running tug of war between authorities and the D.C. Council member over his tax status. In all, prosecutors say, Barry has failed to file his returns on time in eight of the past nine years.

Yesterday, they urged a federal judge to revoke Barry's probation for tax offenses just weeks before it expires.
