OMAHA (AP) - Former state Sen. Brenda Council has pleaded guilty in federal court to wire fraud for misusing campaign money for casino gambling.
Council entered her plea Thursday. She pleaded guilty last year to two state misdemeanor counts related to filing false campaign finance reports. State prosecutors alleged that she concealed her misuse of more than $63,000 in campaign donations at Kansas casinos. Federal prosecutors have agreed to recommend she serve probation.
