  WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry has reported receiving thousands of dollars in gifts from two city contractors in what may be a violation of the council's ethics rules.
     On his recent financial disclosure forms, Barry reported receiving a $4,000 gift from F&L Construction and a $2,800 gift from Forney Enterprises, Inc. The disclosures were first reported by The Washington Post (
     Barry declined to comment to the Post, saying the forms speak for themselves. He says the gifts were listed on the advice of his attorney.
     Forney Enterprises owner Keith Forney told The Post that he believes the gift was intended to help the former mayor with a personal expense, possibly a bill.
     Councilmembers' code of conduct prohibits gifts from city contractors worth more than $20.
