 Jason Noble and William Petroski of The Des Moines Register report that Kent Sorenson pleaded guilty to one count of causing a federal campaign committee to falsely report its expenditures to the FEC and one count of obstruction of justice and faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the first count and 20 years in prison and another $250,000 fine for the second.
     The case involves Sorenson's attempt to hide a payment of $73,000 to induce him to defect from Michele Bachmann's campaign to the presidential campaign of Rep. Ron Paul, days before the Iowa Caucuses preceding the 2012 federal elections.

  • Busted for his role in delivering illegal drugs  
  • Defaulted on Geo (!) car payments
