Lawyers hired to investigate Nashville mayor's use of public cash during affair
NASHVILLE, Tennessee - Mayor Megan Barry says she won't resign despite allegations she spent taxpayer-funded trips she took alone with her lover, including one to Greece.
Burch, Porter and Johnson, a Memphis-based law firm, will spearhead the city's investigation into Barry’s use of taxpayer money during her affair.
The seven-member special committee voted 5-0 Thursday to hire the Memphis lawyers.
Mike Cody, who served as state attorney general in Tennessee from 1984 to 1988, will lead the investigation.
