Iowa State Senator steps down amid investigation


Iowa State Senator Kent Sorenson has resigned after a special investigator found it's likely he violated ethics rules.

The Milo, Iowa lawmaker is accused of taking money from political entities connected to former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and then denying he'd done so.

Sorenson says his decision came after a new report claimed he negotiated payments in 2011 that eventually reached $7,500 a month in exchange for his work as Bachmann's Iowa campaign chair.
