Foreclosure Notice Was Mistake, Says Blackburn
Bank Admits Failing To Make Automatic Payment

FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- Bank officials said Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn's home in Brentwood was placed into foreclosure proceedings because of a processing error.

GreenBank spokesman Bill Adams said in a letter dated Thursday that Blackburn's husband had authorized several electronic mortgage payments for the home in the Nashville suburb, but that the bank failed to send the money to Countrywide Financial.

Adams said the Greeneville-based bank is working with Countrywide to resolve the issue.
