The culture that was Washington, D.C.

D.C. Council member and former mayor Marion Barry has racked up so many parking tickets that his car has been booted. reports that a boot was placed on Barry's Jaguar while it was parked on the street outside his Southeast Washington home.

Records show that Barry has nine unpaid parking tickets, with cumulative fines of $705.

The story is here, but note that Washington is a much-improved city these days.  We now have a Congressman who can beat Watson at Jeopardy!
