Authorities investigate mayor affair with ex-security chief
AP Friday February 2, 2018

Tennessee authorities say they're investigating whether Nashville Mayor Megan Barry or others violated criminal laws in her affair with her former security detail chief.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine says Nashville District Attorney General Glenn Funk requested the investigation.
DeVine says some investigation areas include misappropriation of public funds and official misconduct.
Barry said Thursday she will fully cooperate and declined further comment, citing the ongoing investigation.
On Wednesday, Barry revealed the affair with Sgt. Robert Forrest, who has recently retired. She apologized and said she will remain in office and seek to restore people's trust in her.
Combined travel expenses between Barry and Forrest exceeded $33,000 from January 2017 to late October 2017. She said the trips were business-related, nothing illegal happened and no policies were violated.

 


Tennessee Dad tries to get Trump's attention with Super Bowl ad
AP Friday February 2, 2018

A Tennessee father who says a defective guardrail killed his 17-year-old daughter is trying to get President Donald Trump's attention during the Super Bowl.
Steve Eimers bought a 30-second pre-game ad to run on a West Palm Beach affiliate, gambling that Trump will be at Mar-a-Lago. Game time ads cost about $5 million if running nationally on NBC. But in his $1,000 PSA aimed only at West Palm Beach, Eimers says Trump alleged concerns about guardrail safety during a discussion of his $1.5 trillion infrastructure proposal are valid.
When Hannah Eimers hit the guardrail end in 2016, it penetrated the driver's side door and punctured all the way through, pushing her into the backseat. The family has filed a lawsuit against the guardrail company.
Her father told The Palm Beach Post he's shooting for the moon, but is hoping to share his insight as the president ponders infrastructure changes.
