After repeated denials that taxpayer money was used to fund and then cover up the years-long affair between Nashville Mayor Megan Barry and her security chief, Rob Forrest, WMSV reported that newly released documents the show the illicit couple was set to travel to New York together in order to attend the Grammy Awards on January 26.
“Within the last two hours, we obtained more records from City Hall,” reporter Allana Autler began:
We’ve just learned that there was another trip scheduled for the Mayor and her bodyguard for January 26 – just a few weeks ago.
It was for Barry to attend the Grammy Awards in New York.
Records show the trip was approved on January 10th.
The Mayor’s spokesman says he can’t say when in January it was cancelled. But he did say she changed her plans and came home instead.
We now know that’s the weekend before news of the affair broke.
This new bombshell revelation appears at the end of the video embedded below, which contains a two-and-a-half minute report of an one-on-one interview by Aulter of Barry regarding a number troubling details surrounding the affair between the Mayor and her security chief, and the potential misuse of taxpayer money.
The video condenses Aulter’s interview into what is essentially a ‘highlights’ reel of the most scintillating parts of the interview. However, in a separate post, the station published the entire video and transcript of the encounter between Barry and Autler.
