NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk says he will reimburse the state of Tennessee for a controversial part-time job he was given before becoming D.A. that allowed him to get a good deal on the state’s pension plan and health insurance for him and his family.
Funk has come under fire for the last few weeks over the deal. Ten Metro Nashville Council members have asked the governor and the state attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Funk, and state lawmakers have demanded that he explain the pension deal.
WTVF-TV reports that Funk wrote a letter to state Sen. Brian Kelsey saying he would reimburse the state and go under the new pension system. Funk has always maintained that he did not do anything wrong.
