Another top Democrat just bit the dust.
One of the party’s rising stars careers just ended.
And it was all because of one shocking sex scandal.
Nashville mayor Megan Barry was seen as a rising star in Tennessee Democrat politics.
That’s all over now.
She resigned her office and just pleaded guilty to theft due to spending over $100,000 of taxpayer money on a sexual affair she carried out with her body guard.
Fox News reports:
“The telegenic former chief executive of country music’s hometown was booked Tuesday before she pleaded guilty to misappropriating more than $10,000 in city funds to carry on her scandalous affair with Robert Forrest, who supervised the mayor’s security detail. Barry, 54, announced her resignation soon after.
“While my time as your mayor concludes today, my unwavering love and sincere affection for this wonderful city and its great people shall never come to an end,” an emotional Barry said as she resigned.
She concluded: “God bless this wonderful city. I love you Nashville.”
Barry is the latest liberal to be felled by the sexual misconduct scandals washing out Hollywood, the media and politics.
The vast majority of the offenders – Barry included – were liberals who presented themselves as the champions of women’s rights and the guardians against sexual harassment and misconduct.
That was all just a cover story.
Dating back to John F. Kennedy and later Bill Clinton – the Democrat Party has been defined by sexual scandals and misconduct.
Mayor Barry is just the latest liberal in a long line of elected Democrats who abused the public trust by carrying on an affair.
