Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
Note: As of February 2015, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wren and his wife, Susan, have three children.
On April 1, 2014, Wren pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor ethics violation. As part of the deal, he resigned immediately. The charge stemmed from Wren's ties to a company that employed him as a consultant for $8,000 a month. Wren admitted that he took action in the legislature that could have driven Medicaid business to a pharmacy cooperative with ties to the business he consulted. Wren's attorney stated that the lawmaker did not know of the ties between the pharmacy cooperative his consultee, resulting in a misdemeanor charge because it was an unintentional violation.
