FBI raids home of former top Bachmann aide in Iowa

Source: Star Tribune

FBI agents have searched the home of former Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, once a top official in U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann’s 2012 presidential campaign, his lawyer said Wednesday.

The search, conducted two weeks ago, appeared to focus on communications between various campaign operatives and Sorenson, who abruptly quit as Bachmann’s Iowa campaign chairman in the closing days of the Iowa Republican caucus campaign and threw his support behind Ron Paul.

“It was a very thorough federal criminal search warrant,” said Des Moines attorney Ted Sporer, who represents Sorenson. “It’s pretty obvious they are looking for communications with a presidential campaign or third parties working for a presidential campaign.”

The Bachmann and Paul campaigns have come under scrutiny for allegedly making secret payments to Sorenson, who recently resigned from the Iowa Senate under an ethics cloud.

2. Oh, that ethics cloud.

Without the proper raincoat it can really rain on your parade.

3. Kind of late in the game isn't it?

Sorenson has known he's under investigation for over a year. One would assume he's gotten rid of any incriminating evidence by now.
But he is a republican, so...maybe not.
