WASHINGTON - D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry says he did not personally send tweets from his account criticizing the National Park Service about a Rock Creek Park deer hunt.
Barry, D-Ward 8, also said calling the park service a "MOFO" on Twitter went too far. The term can be used as slang for an explicit reference.
