A GOP lawmaker that took a page out of Trump’s book by calling “witch hunt” just pleaded guilty.

Former Tennessee State Senator Brian Kelsey is taking his poison by fessing up to campaign finance law violations.

The scheme was to benefit his 2016 federal campaign.

Complicated Stuff

I have to hand it to him… he really had this all figured out.

Kelsey, along with the owner of a Nashville social club called The Standard, Joshua Smith, were both indicted by a federal grand jury in October 2021.

After Smith caved, Kelsey followed suit.

Tens of thousands of dollars were being illegally funneled into Kelsey’s federal campaign from various sources, including his state campaign fund.

He was also moving money from a non-profit to the campaign.

Another $80,000 was moved over to cover expenditures.

Kelsey chose not to run for state re-election during the last term amid all this controversy.

His wife was pregnant at the time, and he stated that “a recent, exciting change to my personal life, and I look forward to spending more time with my family.”

In September, his wife gave birth to twin boys.

It must be nice to retire from work just because your wife gave birth.

Kelsey will be sentenced on June 9, 2023.
