Report: Kent Sorenson Received a Check From Former Senior Ron Paul Official


In a 566-page report filed with the Iowa Senate on Wednesday, Mark E. Weinhardt, a specially appointed independent counsel to the Iowa Senate Ethics Committee, reports that Sorenson received money from Bachmann-controlled political action committees by filtering the funds through two separate consulting firms.

Sorenson served as the Iowa campaign chairman of Bachman’s presidential campaign until a dramatic defection to the U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s campaign just days before the Jan. 3, 2012, caucuses.

Senate ethics rules prohibit legislators from receiving payment – either directly or indirectly – from political action committees.

The report also finds that Sorenson received a $25,000 check from a senior official in former Paul’s presidential campaign. He also received $73,000 in wire transfers that Weinhardt called “deeply suspicious.”

Bachmann Levelled This Accusation At The Time

And Ron Paul denied it. He must not have known.

As for Sorenson, he just resigned:
