Well, if the liberals cover it, it must be news now.
I covered the scandal I named #Staffergate for months. (Here’s a one hour podcast I did in December about it.) I said it would end up impacting Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and Mitch McConnell.
Today, one shoe dropped as Ken Sorenson pled guilty. The Des Moines Register:
A former Iowa state senator has pleaded guilty in federal court to crimes related to accepting payment from a presidential campaign during Iowa’s 2012 presidential caucus campaign.
Kent Sorenson, of Milo, concealed payments he received from then-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign and then obstructed the investigation into the incident, the U.S. Department of Justice announced in a release on Wednesday.
He pleaded guilty to two counts and now is awaiting sentencing. Sorenson could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 for the first count and 20 years in prison and another $250,000 fine for the second.
And now MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is covering it.
