Iowa Legislator Pleads Guilty to Taking Bribes from #RonPaul’s Campaign | Common Dreams | Breaking News & Views for the Progressive Community

Sorenson admitted to Justice Department prosecutors that he accepted a total of $73,000 in bribes from Paul’s campaign and lied about it to investigators. In the plea agreement, Sorenson said he received the money in large checks and $8,000 monthly installments from October to December 2011, when he was still named Bachmann’s state chairman, and lied about it to investigators. Before joining Paul’s team, Sorenson was receiving a monthly paycheck between $7,000 and $7,500 from Bachmann’s PAC. Bachmann accused Sorenson of taking bribes when he announced his support of Paul six days before the primaries, which Sorenson, Paul, and his campaign officials all denied at the time.
