A Federal Judge in California sentenced former Nebraska Congressman Jeff Fortenberry to two years probation and over 300 hours of community service after being found guilty of three counts of lying to federal investigators. He must also pay a $25,000 fine.
At today’s sentencing hearing, Judge Stanley Blumenfeld said, “what is clear is that Mr. Fortenberry turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the information that he was clearly provided by Dr. Ayoub in June of 2016.”
“The evidence clearly supports the finding by the jury that Mr. Fortenberry was not blind and he was not deaf. He saw, he heard, and he certainly knew by the contributions were, at a minimum, conduit contributions.”
