Nashville Mayor Megan Barry’s office is calling for District Attorney Glenn Funk to recuse himself from the criminal investigation into her affair, The Tennessean reports. The office of the mayor claims that Funk has a conflict of interest because the budget of the DA’s office is overseen by the mayor’s office. A legal opinion from Memphis attorney and TBA President Lucian Pera was utilized by the mayor’s office in its release. Pera issued the opinion in his capacity as a private attorney and ethics expert. The TBA does not take official positions in investigations of this nature.
