Former Iowa Senator Pleads Guilty to Accepting Money to Back Ron Paul

Kent Sorenson, of Milo, Iowa, has been at the center of accusations that he was paid for his endorsement, first by the Bachmann campaign and then by the Paul campaign, in late 2011. Sorenson switched his endorsement at the last moment before the Iowa caucuses in the 2012 race, but vehemently denied he had been paid to do so.

Are you a woman? Meet a Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers from North Carolina. Is she speaking for you?  The Republican plan to change the ‘war on women’ narrative clearly needs some work.  Anyway - I always wonder why ANY woman can vote for GOP?  It’s a classic “Chickens for Colonel Sanders” case…

Yes she said that: “We need our male colleagues to understand that if you can bring it down to a woman’s leveland what everything that she is balancing in her life — that’s the way to go,she also said that women mainly want more time in their lives (don’t men as well?) and the first example she gave was that women wanted “more time in the morning to get ready.”

If the face looks familiar it’s because Renee Ellmers seems to be special, as her former quotes prove.

And here’s Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s mugshot to brighten your evening.

He turned himself in today at the Travis County Jail in Austin after being indicted on two felony charges last Friday stemming from allegations that his office maneuvered to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign from her position. .

This might put a crimp in his 2016 plans:

"At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit run by Lehmberg’s office. The threat came after she pleaded guilty to drunk driving and served a 45-day sentence; Perry called on her to step down but she refused to resign her position. Perry then vetoed the funding for the PIU.

A grand jury was called to determine whether or not Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto the funding. As a result they issued indictments on two felony charges: abuse of official capacity and coercion of public servant. If found guilty on the charges, Perry could be sentenced to a maximum 109 years in prison.

An indictment indicates the grand jury believes the state has a strong enough case to send to trial and is not a finding of guilt. Special prosecutor Michael McCrum oversaw the presentation to the grand jury who has been meeting on and off this summer and returned the indictment Friday afternoon.”
