Nashville Mayor Admits Affair With Security Chief

Nashville Mayor Admits Affair With Security Chief”

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry revealed Wednesday that she had an extramarital affair with the former head of her security detail, apologized and said she plans to continue serving in office.

Barry, 54, confirmed she'd been involved with Metro police Sgt. Robert Forrest Jr. since the spring or summer of 2016, The Tennessean reported.

Barry said she would talk to the media at 7 p.m.

"We will give any records over to anybody who would like them, transparency in any investigation", she said.

The first term mayor's admission follows the painful loss of the Barrys' only son, Max, in July after an overdose on a combination of several drugs, including two opioids.

"God will forgive me, but the people of Nashville don't have to". "In the weeks and months to come, I will work hard to earn your forgiveness and earn back your trust". But this is not my worst day, ' Barry said. "Please know that I'm disappointed in myself but also understand that I'm a human and that I made a mistake". "And obviously, the buck stops at her desk with things that she has to deal with, and now she has something to deal with of a personal nature", said NewsChannel 5 Political Analyst Pat Nolan.

The affair between the mayor and her bodyguard, which is now reportedly over, appears to have come at particularly trying time for Barry. Wednesday was the final day at work for Forrest, a 31-year veteran of the force who submitted his retirement papers January 17. According to CBS affiliate WTVF, Forrest had served in the security detail for former mayors Bill Purcell and Karl Dean, but his overtime pay increased considerably since Barry's election. "I accept full responsibility for the pain I have caused my family and his". "At no time did I ever violate my oath as a police office or engage in actions that would abuse the public trust". He asked for privacy as he works "to rebuild the trust of the ones I love most".

Barry apologized for the relationship, saying "it was wrong, and we shouldn't have done it".
