To be fair, I do not know the truth of the story of the record of Brenda Lenard. In a news story, which I linked to and reported as a "claim," it was reported that Lenard had been guilty of cashing bad checks and guilty of "abusive filing" of bankruptcies. In this news story published in the Murfreesboro Post she explains the basis of those charges and says "she has requested the slanderous articles to be retracted but it hasn’t happened." I wish someone would pull the court records and get to the bottom of this.
Brenda Lenard is running against Lamar Alexander in the Republican primary for the Party's nomination for U. S. Senator. Tea party activist and libertarian-Republicans have been clamoring for a primary challenger to Alexander and have found no candidate of stature and experience to step forward. Lenard is one of three possible challengers, none of which would likely be able to mount a credible challenge to Alexander.
