(Washington Post) — The silver Jaguar that D.C. Council member Marion Barry has driven for more than six months has “inactive” District tags and is not registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles, according to city records. The documents, obtained by The Washington Post through a records request, raise questions about how Barry has continued to use his vehicle without it being scrutinized by police or city parking control officers. The license plate on Barry’s Jaguar has been “inactive” since Sept. 29, about the time he stopped using the black BMW sedan he had been driving, according to information from the DMV. In December, Barry (D-Ward 8) reported the 2002 Jaguar stolen, and it was recovered by police three days laterand returned to him despite the apparent inactive tags. On March 1, the car was booted by parking control officers for nine unpaid parking tickets totaling $705, according to media reports. The boot was removed later that day after Barry paid six of the nine summonses.
