WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. Councilmember and former mayor Marion Barry is back in the hospital.

Barry tweeted Tuesday night that he is in the hospital with a urinary tract infection and he’s not seriously ill.

The 77-year-old spent 16 days in the hospital last month. The former four-term mayor has suffered from a variety of ailments, including prostate cancer and diabetes. He underwent a kidney transplant in 2009.

Barry represents the poorest of the District of Columbia’s wards on the council. He was elected to a third consecutive term in 2012.
