Nashville mayor who had affair with bodyguard resigns after pleading guilty to criminal theft

Adulteress and thief, from California, ran for office in a city she didn't "hail from". Following in Hillary's footsteps.

************

Barry was seen a rising star among Democrats until her admission of the affair with Forrest derailed her first term in office. She became mayor in September 2015.

In a separate court proceeding Tuesday, Forrest also pleaded guilty to criminal theft in connection with the affair.

He agreed to pay $45,000 restitution to the city, the Tennessean reported. He was also ordered to served three years probation.

 

Barry admitted to the affair Jan. 31. At the time she vowed to remain in office.

Original Post

She left the city/county with an upcoming referendum in May on whether to borrow $9 BILLION for a 5 leg light rail/team system.  I'm talking B's.

Only democrats would propose such a bone headed proposition.  The public transportation system is presently ignored by citizens and is underutilized.

The South Nashville I grew up in is heavily, heavily Republican.  I only know 3 democrats.  Unfortunately most of my childhood friends moved to the surrounding counties for a higher quality of life and they were replaced by democrats and aliens.  As of today, the referendum has a good chance of passing by a vote.I

But all I say to the ex-mayor is, "Adios!"

no Wabbit it isn't.   the story has nothing to due with Trump.  Trump hasn't been accused of using taxpayer money.  All the accusations of Trump were before he got in office.   It appears the accusations of Trump are political driven.  interesting how many loved him (or his money) when he wasn't president.  Now that is hypocritical.

You got that right. The left loved him, especially the Clintons, and there was never a hint of him being racist or mistreating women. They still can't point out anything that makes him either now.

We should hope Rep. Marsha Blackburn wins the senate seat
in Tennessee opened by Corker.

You must not associate with many Demmies, or don't recognize their political policies.

There has NEVER been a Republican steal public funds or have an affair while in office.

 And if they do you libs scream like a scaulded ape. In this thread we are discussing a Democrat from another state, that moved to Tennessee, somehow got elected mayor of a major city, then STOLE money from taxpayers to finance her adultress affair. On some "news"sites they don't list her as a Democrat. When they don't do that, it's one of the give aways that they have that D by their name.

Didn't make any comments on Republicans politicians, did I!  I don't hold most of the tribe of politicos in high esteem.

So why do so many people preface their remarks with comments about how a politician was a "Demmie" or a Rebublican? Why isn't the point of the story that the mayor of Nashville screwed up and has left office? She didn't make a mess because she is a Democrat, she just happens to be a Democrat. I don't understand these people who make blanket statements tainted by their political beliefs. There are good, decent, honest Republicans and there are Republicans who are people who are Republicans who happen to be bad people. There are good, honest, decent Democrats and there are people who are Democrats who happen to be bad people. We are all Americans.

Maybe peedee can tell us about the anti-American Farrakhan that the left has crawled into bed with, and just how that happened.

The left thinks foreigners that come here are somehow automatically Americans, although too many of them are not here to benefit the country but themselves only. They are not and never will be Americans,  Same with the democrats. They don't care about the country, only what they can wring out of her to benefit themselves only.

As to my description of Democrats, California serves as an excellent example.  LA and the Bay area are developing into open cesspools, with tens of thousands of homeless.

The pre-Civil War south had homes and plantations of extraordinary wealth and opulence.  Slave labor supported such.  Slaves depressed the wages of free persons of all colors.  There were large numbers of poor and a small middle class that catered to the wealthy planters.  Cotton exchanges made a small business class wealthy acting as factors selling to northern and British mills.  Southern governors set their states on a path of opposition to the federal government to protect the wealthy planter class and factors. 

California has portions that are wealthy surrounded by the homeless and those barely able to survive the cost of living in the state.  IT provides much of the wealth in Silicon Valley and the Bay area.  The IT companies use underpaid labor in their companies and illegals to keep up their extensive manor houses.  Similarly, the fruit orchards and vineyards use illegals to pick and process their produce.  Hollywood utilizes similar in their industry, coupled with sex perversion.  

California politicians from the governor to the mayors protect their illegal labor force in much the same way southern governors protected the slave trade.  Even down to laws that attempt to obviate federal law.  IOW, Demmies operating in the same method they've done for over 150 years.

How is this different from any other state?  There isn't any areas like this in Alabama?

Naio, are you just clueless, or a clueless Demmie!  Is that statement redundant?  The middle class is fleeing California in droves.

From the LA Times:

"The rent steals so much of your paycheck, you might have to move back in with your parents, and half your life is spent staring at the rear end of the car in front of you.

You'd like to think it will get better, but when? All around you, young and old alike are saying goodbye to California.

"Best thing I could have done," said retiree Michael J. Van Essen, who was paying $1,160 for a one-bedroom apartment in Silver Lake until a year and a half ago. Then he bought a house with a creek behind it for $165,000 in Mason City, Iowa, and now pays $500 a month less on his mortgage than he did on his rent in Los Angeles.

Van Essen was one of the many readers who responded in October when I reached out to people who got sick and tired of the high cost of living in California. I heard from someone in Idaho and others who moved to Arizona and Nevada."

http://www.latimes.com/local/c...-20171203-story.html

To illustrate the rate people are fleeing the place:

"The cost to rent a 26-foot U-Haul truck — big enough to move a three- to four-bedroom home — out of San Francisco headed to Las Vegas reached as high as $2,085 for four days. To rent the same truck going in the opposite direction is only a fraction of that cost — $132."

Logic and drawing conclusions from evidence presented isn't your strong point, one sees.  My point was that Democrats by emulating their centuries old strategy of building up and maintaining a slave economy to enrich their core is what they do.  At the cost of destroying a middle class, or never allowing a large middle class to exist.

Businesses and people have been fleeing California for years now, but unfortunately, like this mayor, too many are bringing the disease of liberalism with them. Not to mention their criminal tendencies.

Democrats a century ago, were the republicans.  Today's republicans are the dixiecrats.  Your logic is flawed.  Also, if you refuse to believe today's republican politicians aren't guilty of the same thing, then your reasoning is biased.

Not really:

 “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”-----LBJ

https://www.snopes.com/fact-ch...he-lowest-white-man/

Half a century ago, Dems found a new use for blacks. They were taken out of the workforce, given welfare checks, and put into government subsidized housing for the benefit of crony capitalists and white union members who no longer had to compete with their low wages. The usefulness of Blacks had shifted from being a cheap workforce to grow cotton for the plantation owner to being a pass through of other peoples money to the landlords and store owners while also becoming a voting block for Dems to bribe with tax dollars.

Also the change really didn't happen in voting patterns until a couple of decades after the civil rights era. Before that people chose their candidates more on account of whether a persons grandpa or great grandpa supported Lincoln or not. There used to be rather conservative Democrats even up North as well as very liberal (Modern definition!) Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller or Richard Nixon.

So that LBJ quote doesn't sound like today's republicans in any way?

Nope, Dems have stayed the same; the only difference is that they have come for the rest of us to be put in the California style plantation.
