Rasheeda Moore, the former model who cooperated with the FBI in setting up Washington Mayor Marion Barry's drug arrest, testified at his trial Wednesday that the two had used cocaine and other drugs "over 100 times." During the three years of a relationship that was also sexual, Moore testified, she and Barry used drugs at all hours and in all places--in hotels, borrowed apartments, government offices, a drug dealer's rooming house and Barry's own home.
