Democratic Nashville mayor resigns for theft
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politic...rd-n854031

"...Shortly after the mayor's resignation, Forrest pleaded guilty to the same felony theft charge and agreed to reimburse the city $45,000 that was paid to him as salary or overtime when he was not performing his duties as the mayor's security detail.
The investigation found the photos in Forrest's work email and said they had been taken by his phone. There were also 260 deleted chats between Forrest's phone and Barry's phone number as well as 35 deleted call logs, an affidavit said.
The mayor agreed to reimburse the city $11,000. Both Barry and Forrest were sentenced to three years of probation..."

And the real kicker-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megan_Barry
"...Barry worked in business ethics and corporate responsibility for the multinational telecommunications firm Nortel Networks.[6] From 2003 to 2012, Barry was vice president of ethics and compliance at Premier, Inc., a health-care group purchasing organization.[6] She also worked as principal of Barry & Associates, an independent consulting organization to multinational corporations on issues dealing with business ethics and corporate social responsibility....[6] "

As much as Nashville looks down their nose at Memphis, at least we can say our mayor isn't guilty of a felony.


BTW, I think that conviction carries up to 10 years. If you or I were found guilty would we have gotten off with probation and no prison time?

Bottom line...if your last name is Barry, you probably shouldn't be a mayor.

That’s not nearly as ironic as it might appear at first glance. Corporate America is now firmly in the grip of people like Megan Barry. They consider themselves to be the ideal candidates to lecture the rest of us on subjects like “corporate social responsibility” (and be paid for it, too). Nice work if you can get it. For those of us on the outside looking in, this whole little drama is a useful reminder of what dishonest/self-righteous @ssholes those people really are. Bad enough that they dominate the corporate world, but beware even more when they try to slither into the realm of elective office.

She was not going to resign except for the fact that her nude pictures were going to become part of a public trial.

when something like this happens, why do OP's list what party they are affiliated with? This happens on both sides. Does it really matter what party he affiliates with?

Because some people may not have known she was a democrat, because NBC actively hid that from their reporting. The media is team over country.

Exactly. And the media puts it in all caps headlines when it is a Republican.

Right...and fox making an issue of this non issue is what then exactly?

FWIW - Both CBS and ABC mentioned it, as did NBC in their web story on it.

Quote:Nashville Mayor Megan Barry resigned Tuesday after pleading guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from the city while carrying on an extramarital affair with her bodyguard.

The rising Democratic star...

Pretty petty for Fox...especially with their long track record of mislabeling R's as D's when they actually report negatively on an R.
