Channel 13 (WHO-TV) in Des Moines is reporting that current campaign manager for presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, Eric Woolson, confirms her story that state Senator Kent Sorenson left her campaign suddenly and that he and Sorenson had discussed the $30,000 cash payment and an additional $8,000 a month Sorenson had been offered by the Paul campaign.
MSNBC reports that it might be against Iowa state law if Sorenson takes money from the Paul campaign. However, according to Woolson, the money would not come directly from the Paul treasury, but would come from consulting firms, associated with Paul. If true, this would make Paul’s claim that Sorenson wasn’t offered money by him technically true.
Wes Enos also left his official campaign position, defending Sorenson’s version of the story.
