As for Marion Berry, no I do not support crackheads serving. But unlike pedophiles, crackheads are treatable and can rehabilitate.
There are those who would say the same about pedophiles....I'm not one of them, but the point remains.
I just ask, "Where are they now?". If the whitewashing, defending, etc you state above are true then I will be doing my part. Politically, setting the immorality aside, it's a BIIIIGGG LOSER to support these people. IT CAN'T win. No office is so great that it is worth supporting a pedophile just to hold it, the long term credibility damage is not worth it. I know you think we're stupid, but that's insane to believe that seasoned politicians would do that. Furthermore, there were a number on that list that are not elected officials, rather activists, who are not running for office so what would you have me do above and beyond what a citizen subscribing to any ideaological belief system would receive?
