The Iowa Senate ethics committee met Wednesday, this time with new information about an investigation into a lawmaker’s actions.

The committee met to discuss a complaint against Republican senator Kent Sorensen.

Peter Waldron, a former aide to presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, filed the ethics complaint against Sorensen. It claims Sorensen concealed payments he received from the campaign and stole an email list of people who home school their children for use in his own campaign.

Wednesday, Waldron submitted an email to the committee saying a confidential witness has come forward.

“Now we`re sending a 10 day notice to get the affidavit back that he said he said he is willing and able to testify,” says Sen. Wally Horn.

The ethics committee says if the confidential witness doesn’t come forward within ten days the complaint will be dropped.
