Gross: TN Democrat Nashville Mayor Stole Taxpayer Dollars to Finance Sexual Escapades, Nude Photos Surface [videos]

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) is investigating Nashville Mayor Megan Barry after it received nude photos taken on a mobile device that was used by her former bodyguard and lover, Sgt. Rob Forrest.

Part of the investigation has revealed that Barry used $33,000 to finance her sexual escapades with her body guard on trips to Paris, Athens, Washington, D.C., New York City, Denver, Oakland, Salt Lake City, and Kansas City. Forrest earned $50,000 in overtime pay for accompanying her.

Barry issued a public statement apologizing for the affair but has no intention of resigning. She’s even asking taxpayers for more money to finance a $5.4 billion transit infrastructure plan.

Nashville Judge Steve Dozier signed a search warrant for TBI to obtain Barry’s cell phone. The affidavit states, “A search of Megan Barry’s phone could reveal information that is crucial evidence for this case. In particular, data and information that has been deleted from Sgt. Forrest’s phone may still exist on Megan Barry’s phone.”

The Tennessean reported that the Chair of the Metro Budget and Finance Committee, Tanaka Vercher, is looking into how to Barry could be criminally charged for the misuse and theft of taxpayer money.
