A southeastern Kentucky bank has filed a foreclosure suit against former Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer and his wife seeking more than $300,000 due on their mortgage loan of 2004.

First National Bank of Manchester filed suit Wednesday in Franklin Circuit, saying no mortgage payments have been made "since at least January."

Rebecca Farmer filed for divorce in April 2011, and the case is pending. Her attorney, Brian Logan, told The Courier-Journal that Richie Farmer is responsible for making payments under an agreement made in the divorce case.

Farmer's divorce attorney, Richard Guarnieri, declined comment because he doesn't represent Farmer in the foreclosure.

The suit comes on the heels of a state auditor's report that found "a toxic culture of entitlement and self-dealing" during Farmer's 2003-11 tenure as agriculture commissioner.
