The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and local police last Thursday raided an assisted living facility in Cookeville that is partially owned by Republican legislative candidate Ed Butler, the Nashville Post reports. The raid stems from allegations of possible abuse and financial exploitation of the elderly residents of the home, according to District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway. This is not the first time the facility, Senior Lifestyles, has been the subject of legal controversy. The home — known as Living the Dream at the time — made headlines when its prior executive director pleaded guilty to embezzling upwards to $1 million.
