Wendell Marlowe has raised by far the most money – $10,725. More than the other three candidates combined. And most of the money has come from realtors and developers.
Two questionable business contributions are to be found in Marlowe’s Financial Disclosure form.
One is from Summit Realty Group in Mt. Juliet, which the TN Secretary of State lists as an LLC. There is an attorney general’s opinion from 1998 which opines that the state prohibition on corporate campaign contributions does not apply to LLCs. It is unclear if the issue has ever been tested in the courts.
