Rep. Marsha Blackburn's House Foreclosed??

I stole that headline from Politico. Tennessee's Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn says it's only a "paperwork error." Yet a legal notice went out proclaiming that her Brentwood home would be sold on the steps of the Williamson County Judicial Building on Jan. 29.

Rep. Blackburn may run for governor in 2010. Would that us ordinary folk could chalk all our financial woes up to "paperwork errors."

The Memphis Flyer reports:

7th District congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, who represents portions of Shelby County and last fall was among the stoutest opponents of any federal bailouts related to the housing industry crisis, saw her own home listed for foreclosure this week, but apparently will avert any further jeopardy.
