Iowa State Senator Found Not Guilty

An Iowa state Senator charged with one count of attempted extortion under the Hobbs Act was found not guilty of by a jury.  As discussed in an earlier post (here), the defense had filed a motion to dismiss for prosecutorial misconduct.  The case involved recordings by a prosecuting witness with the state Senator, and he was rather substantially impeached by the defense.  A Des Moines Register story (here) discusses the jury verdict.
