It has become the trip to the urinal that won’t end: In 2000, a female janitor at Baltimore-Washington International Airport accused former Mayor Marion Barry Jr. of exposing himself to her as she cleaned a restroom. Barry later conceded there was enough evidence to convict him of second-degree assault and accepted a sentence of community service and probation without pleading guilty. The janitor, Terry Jenkins, filed a civil suit against Barry in Maryland for assault and emotional distress—leading to a $35,000 default judgment against him in October 2002, after he denied the accusations but neglected to defend himself. Jenkins’ attorney, Barry R. Glazer, says Barry still hasn’t paid up. So in November, Glazer filed a request in D.C. Superior Court to collect the debt (plus interest) on Barry’s home turf. “He’s done nothing to satisfy the judgment,” Glazer says. Says Barry: “My lawyers are handling it.” —David Morton
