Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk was profiled today by The Tennessean about his role in the investigation and eventual resignation of former Mayor Megan Barry. Funk described his decision to appear in court himself on the day of Barry’s hearing — in which she pleaded guilty to felony theft over $10,000 — by saying he hoped it would provide authority to the deal Barry had struck. He also denied the presence of a conflict of interest in his investigation, saying that his office derives its power from the state government, not the mayor.
