Metro Council creates committee to investigate Mayor's affair

 

Metro Council passed a resolution Tuesday evening creating a committee to look into Mayor Megan Barry's affair with former bodyguard Sgt. Rob Forrest.

Since news broke last week, a barrage of questions has been raised about taxpayer money that may have been used to pay him over $119 thousand in overtime since she took office as well as extended business trips the pair took together on the city's dime.
