In Nashville there’s something like a soap opera playing out between the mayor, her police sergeant boyfriend/bodyguard and the locals.
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry is doing mea culpas all over the place, apologizing for an extra marital affair she had with her boyfriend/bodyguard.
I know God forgives, but the people of Nashville don’t have to — and I also want to ask for their forgiveness,” Barry said Wednesday.

Sgt. Robert Forrest, the boyfriend, also apologized.
“I deeply regret that my professional relationship with Mayor Barry turned into a personal one,” Forrest said in the release. “This has caused great pain for my wife, my family, friends and colleagues.”
He also said he was retiring.
