Marion Barry has advice for politicians looking to bounce back from scandal

Washington (CNN) - Sitting in an office with political memorabilia on the walls, former Washington Mayor Marion Barry reflects on the bad moments - drug possession, jail, and tax evasion - and notes that he has moved on.

Barry is in many ways after a 40-year public career the prototype for political disgrace and political resurrection.

    If Mitt Romney would release his tax returns we would see that he evaded taxes on his off-shore accounts. So please Mitt, release your tax returns for the past 20 years and just "move on" like Marion.

    Please go away Marion Barry, you are an embarrassment to decent black people like myself. No one cares about anything you have to say. Now poof, be gone.
