A day later, Funk announced he was requesting the TBI to investigate whether Barry or Forrest had misused taxpayer money during that affair. "Nashville, with its boundless energy, its infectious optimism, it has never encountered an obstacle it couldn't overcome, will in the years ahead continue its steady march toward the very top of the list of great American cities", she said, the paper reported. Just over a month ago the mayor admitted to having an affair [VIDEO]with her security detail.

"I can not tell you how many people have come to me and shared their own grief stories about a loved one who died where they never talked about it before", Barry told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview in August.

"We are not looking for a flawless human being as a mayor".

She will reimburse the amount of money to the capital city of the US southern state of Tennessee and will be on probation for three years.

Barry will serve three years of probation and reimburse the city $11,000 in restitution. "And I will tell you I know the difference between a mistake - I made a serious mistake - but this is not a tragedy".

Barry is expected to resign and Vice Mayor David Briley (D.) will be sworn in later in the afternoon.
