Nashville mayor resigns after pleading guilty to felony theft

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office said “The new tax reform law has boosted the economy and we certainly don’t want to jeopardize those gains.”

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry resigned on Tuesday after pleading guilty in state court to theft in connection with an extramarital affair she admitted to having with the head of her security detail.

As stunning news broke Tuesday morning (March 6) that Nashville Mayor Megan Barry was resigning after a sex scandal, Maren Morris turned to social media to reveal that the mayor once helped her with a "terrifying" stalker.

Barry graduated from Notre Dame de Sion and her mother lives in Overland Park. Both Barry and Forrest were sentenced to three years of probation. But soon enough the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation was checking into the possibility that the lovers had illegally financed their affair through expense reimbursements for travel on the taxpayer's dime.

"While my time as your mayor concludes today, my unwavering love and honest affection for this wonderful city and its great people shall never come to an end", an emotional Barry said as she resigned.

Vice-Mayor David Briley, a Barry ally and the scion of a prominent Nashville political family, became mayor upon her resignation, and will presumably be running in an August special election to fill her four-year term, which ends next year. An affidavit, filed with the warrant, stated that nude photos that were found on Forrest's phone were evidence of the former officer engaging in the affair while on duty. A special election to choose a new mayor will be held August 2.

"While my time as your mayor concludes today, my unwavering love and honest affection for this wonderful city and its great people shall never come to an end", Barry said. The document also provided deleted cellphone conversations from Forrest's phone during the trips.

There's never a good time for a sex/financial scandal, but it was particularly bad timing for Barry, whose signature public transportation initiative is going before Nashville voters in May. "I love you, Nashville". "But this is not my worst day", Barry said in January. He has agreed to serve three years supervised probation and to repay the city of Nashville $45,000, court documents obtained by CNN show. It also shined a light on overtime that Forrest was accruing. Mayor Barry's resignation will enable us to regain focus on the important work of our city. Briley promised transparency and said he will work to restore the public trust.

Metro Nashville Police records show Forrest's overtime more than doubled in the budget year after Barry was elected in September 2015.
