Nashville Mayor Megan Barry resigns, pleads guilty to theft following affair with security detail

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry resigns, pleads guilty to theft following affair with security detailNashville Mayor Megan Barry agreed to resign on Tuesday as part of a plea deal regarding a felony theft charge, about one month after admitting to an extramarital affair with her bodyguard. The Tennessee politician had initially planned to stay in office following the revelation that she had an intimate relationship with Sgt. Robert Forrest, but an ethics review and special committee’s probe into misuse of funds led the Democrat to cede her role. The 54-year-old Democratic mayor has served in her municipal position since 2015, and news of her extramarital relationship comes after Barry lost her 22-year-old son, Max, to a drug overdose last July.
