Two sources have confirmed to me that last week, in Iowa, the FBI raided the house of Kent Sorenson.
Sorenson is the Iowa politico who allegedly received illegal payoffs from the Michelle Bachmann 2012 presidential campaign and the Ron Paul 2012 presidential campaign.
According to my sources, the FBI was at Sorenson's house for 7 hours. They took Sorenson's computers and the school-related computers of Sorenson's children. Notebooks and diaries were also taken.
Who knew what in the Ron Paul 2012 campaign about the payoffs to Sorenson will surely be a major topic going into the 2014 mid-term election cycle, as investigative journalist Lee Stranaham appears to have id'd two Ron Paul campaign 2012 officials who were aware of the payoffs, and who are now working for Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign.
On a longer timeline, the raid at Sorenson's house suggests the FBI is taking the payoffs to Sorenson very seriously, which means they may stumble across even uglier payoffs made to protect a Ron Paul 2012 official.
Everyday, I am learning of more journalists picking up the scent on this story. There are many twists, turns and oddities to this story that will likely eventually result in it gaining national prominence. I know of one serious journalist who is planning to visit Des Moines, Iowa within the next two weeks to poke around.
