Michele Bachmann’s legislative endorsements in Iowa are quite the mixed bag: A state senator who served jail time for selling pot; a former mayor who allegedly stalked his ex-girlfriend until the police intervened; a state senator who can claim to be the first to show Focus on the Family videos at the state Capitol; and a state senator who dressed half naked in a chicken costume to dispense beer to bikers.
Sen. Kent Sorenson was the first state legislator to endorse Bachmann, doing so in March 2011. The Republican from Indianola is also the chairman of Bachmann’s Iowa campaign. First a state representative, Sorenson won a seat in the Iowa Senate in 2010. And he’s had a checkered past.
In 1993, Sorenson was caught in a police sting after he tried to sell an informant marijuana, The Des Moines Register reported. He pleaded guilty to delivery of marijuana and spent 5 days in jail and paid $300.
Sorenson told the paper that he was a different person back then and had changed his life.
The Register also reported that Sorenson fell behind on his child support payments in 1992 and the state ordered his wages be garnished and he fell behind again in 1995.
