Thigh-slapping item from Tennessee:
A foreclosure notice published Thursday on 7th District Congressman Marsha Blackburn’s Murray Lane home in Brentwood was the result of her bank’s failure to make automatic payments to Countrywide Home Loans, according to her staff.
The legal notice, titled “Substitute Trustee’s Sale,” said the Blackburns’ home would be sold on the steps of the Williamson County Judicial Building on Jan. 29, although her office said the entire issue is a paperwork error by the bank.
A Congressman in foreclosure? Is that irony or comeuppance?
Why, yes, yes, it is.
