Former Iowa State Senator Ken Sorenson pled guilty of accepting bribes today in Federal Court…but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Mr. Sorenson, 42, of Milo, Iowa, had been the state chairman for the presidential campaign of Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, but then switched his support to former Representative Ron Paul of Texas just days before the state’s caucus.
In a statement filed with his plea agreement, Mr. Sorensen admitted that he agreed to switch his allegiance in exchange for $73,000 in payments. The Justice Department did not name the campaigns involved in the scheme. He has not yet been sentenced.
But that’s all the only illegal shenanigans Sorenson was involved in.
He was also involved in the theft of a valuable mailing list, a theft that involved others who will be caught up in the aftermath of Sorenon turning state’s evidence with today’s plea deal.
Listen to this exclusively obtained audio of Sorenson discussing the mailing list theft.
