Federal agents search home of former Iowa lawmaker

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Federal agents recently searched the home of a former Iowa state senator and seized computers and other materials.

The Des Moines Register reports Wednesday (http://dmreg.co/1gEWGlg ) that agents from the FBI searched Kent Sorenson’s home on Nov. 20. Sorenson’s attorney Theodore Sporer says computers were confiscated.

Sporer says he has not been notified that Sorenson is the target of any investigation.

Sorenson, a Republican from Milo, resigned his Senate seat after an independent investigator concluded he likely broke ethics rules in receiving money from presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s political action committee and presidential campaign.

Sorenson has said his resignation wasn’t an admission of wrongdoing.
