"The U.S. would be better off by staying out of this unnecessary fight. Europe, then, would be less anxious to engage in a trade war with Russia, which eventually could lead to a military confrontation."

Guilty Plea: Iowa State Senator Paid for Ron Paul Switch – Roll Call (blog)

By Steven Dennis Posted at 2:18 p.m. Aug. 27

A former Iowa state senator pleaded guilty to concealing payments he received from former Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign to switch his support from Rep. Michele Bachmann.

Kent Sorenson, 42, of Milo, Iowa, entered the guilty plea for one count of causing a federal campaign committee to falsely report its expenditures and one count of obstruction of justice.

According to a Department of Justice release, Sorenson admitted he had supported one campaign for the 2012 presidential election, but from October to December 2011, “he met and secretly negotiated with a second political campaign to switch his support to that second campaign in exchange for concealed payments that amounted to $73,000.”

“On Dec. 28, 2011, at a political event in Des Moines, Iowa, Sorenson publicly announced his switch of support and work from one candidate to the other,” the release said. That’s the day he switched his support from Bachmann to Paul.

“An elected official admitted that he accepted under-the-table payments from a campaign committee to secure his support and services for a candidate in the 2012 presidential election,” Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell said in a statement. “Campaign finance reports should be accurate and transparent, not tools for concealing campaign expenditures. Lying by public officials — whether intended to obstruct the FEC or federal investigators — violates the public trust and the law, and the Department of Justice does not tolerate it.”

DOJ said Sorenson was paid about $8,000 a month, with the payments concealed by passing them through a film production company, then through a second company and finally to Sorenson and his spouse.

In his plea agreement, Sorenson also admitted that he gave false testimony to an independent counsel appointed at the request of the Iowa Senate Ethics Committee, which was investigating allegations from a former Bachmann campaign employee.

“Today, Mr. Sorenson has taken responsibility for his crimes,” said Acting Assistant Director in Charge Timothy A. Gallagher. “Exploiting the political process for personal gain will not be tolerated, and we will continue to pursue those who commit such illegal actions.”

The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office, with assistance from the Omaha Field Office and the Des Moines Resident Agency, according to the release.

Last year, the Office of Congressional Ethics released a report on Bachmann’s campaign, including allegations of payments to Sorenson and various other issues.

Iowa Politician Admits To Accepting Illegal Money From Ron Paul Campaign – BuzzFeed

WASHINGTON — A former Iowa state senator has pleaded guilty to hiding money received from Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in exchange for ending his support for Michele Bachmann, the Department of Justice announced on Wednesday.

Kent Sorenson was a supporter of Bachmann’s campaign in the 2012 primaries. He later switched his allegiance to Paul’s campaign, after Paul deputy campaign manager Dimitri Kesari wrote him a $25,000 check, the Associated Press reported. Sorenson eventually received $73,000 in payments that were linked to the campaign, an investigator found. Sorenson has now admitted taking the bribes, and pleaded guilty to one count of concealing federal campaign expenditures.

“According to a statement of facts filed with the plea agreement, Sorenson admitted that he had supported one campaign for the 2012 presidential election, but from October to December 2011, he met and secretly negotiated with a second political campaign to switch his support to that second campaign in exchange for concealed payments that amounted to $73,000,” the Department of Justice wrote in a release on Wednesday. “On Dec. 28, 2011, at a political event in Des Moines, Iowa, Sorenson publicly announced his switch of support and work from one candidate to the other.”

According to the DOJ, the payments came in monthly installments of $8,000 each, concealed by paying them out to a film production company before they made it to Sorenson.

The controversy over Sorenson’s switching sides and allegations of bribery led to several ugly incidents, including a former Paul staffer secretly recording and releasing a conversation with Paul’s 2012 campaign manager.
