Senate Hopefuls Have Bad Financial Past

At least 13 politicians currently running for Senate – most with a message of fiscal restraint — have filed for bankruptcy, been hit with liens for overdue taxes or been convicted of crimes, according to an investigation of the 350 candidates running for Senate that was conducted by the nonpartisan research firm InvestigativeCheck (www.investigativecheck.com) and shared with the Washington Guardian.

The candidates with past troubles span the country and cut across party lines: there are eight Republicans, two Independents, and three Democrats. They include one who has been convicted of writing a bad check in Tennessee, another convicted of damaging property in Wisconsin, and a third accused of fleeing Minnesota and remaining a fugitive overseas.
