Marion Barry -- Rob Ford 'Can't Match My Record'


Former D.C. mayor Marion Barry says Toronto mayor Rob Ford can't hold a candle to him --  problem is ... we can't tell if he's talking about political accomplishments or drug use.

Our photog got Barry out in downtown Washington D.C. Tuesday night, where we asked him who gets more love in their respective cities ... him or Ford?

For the record ... Barry was convicted of cocaine possession and served 6 months in prison.  Ford was caught on video smoking crack but never prosecuted.

Barry also grouses about the shelved movie about his life, saying 2 white guys had no business getting in his business.
