Nashville Mayor Megan Barry Resigns In Wake Of Extramarital Affair Revelation, Investigation

Megan Berry, the Nashville mayor who resigned Tuesday amid an affair scandal, pleaded guilty to a $10,000 felony theft tied to the affair.

She kept her remarks brief and smiled throughout the announcement.

Barry graduated from Notre Dame de Sion and her mother lives in Overland Park.

"I will watch as a private citizen and I will be tremendously proud", she told reporters after the hearing, referring to the city. "I felt safer as an artist in Nashville", Morris admitted via Twitter. AP reported that it was. And it's all something of a tragedy for progressive activists in Nashville and in Tennessee, who viewed Barry as having defied the cautious centrist template for Democrats in the state.

Barry stunned the city in late January when she confessed to the extramarital relationship, which began in spring 2016 and continued as her popularity and accomplishments grew. The mayor issued her statement saying she accepted full responsibility for her actions and apologized for the pain she caused her family and the family of the sergeant. "I am so sorry to my husband Bruce, who has stood by me in my darkest moments and remains committed to our marriage, just as I am committed to repairing the damage I have done". Barry is the focus of three ongoing investigations in total, including a criminal inquiry by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation brought on by District Attorney Glenn Funk.

Mayor of Nashville Megan Barry announced she would resign at a news conference Tuesday morning. "We look forward to continuing the strong partnership we have with Metro, alongside Mayor David Briley, as we jointly work hard to move Nashville forward". He maintained that role from the time Barry entered office in September 2015 until his retirement, which took effect the same day Barry acknowledged the affair.

The mayor's office has denied any indication that she misused travel time or taxpayers' money due to their relationship. She was also fined and sentenced to three years of probation. FORREST, a 31-year department vet, announced his retirement on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31st, the same day BARRY revealed their affair. Forrest accumulated hundreds of hours of overtime pay accompanying Barry to events and on trips, a possible misappropriation of taxpayer money. Reports also allege that Barry and Forrest often traveled alone without additional security or staff. "I thank you in advance for the support that I am sure you will give Mayor Briley in the weeks and the months ahead".
