Jeff Fortenberry Congressmen

Former Congressman Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska was sentenced to two years of probation, a $25,000 fine and community service for lying to federal authorities about $30,000 in illegal campaign contributions. 

Today’s sentence came as voters in his district are deciding on his replacement in a special election. 

Republican state Sen. Mike Flood faces a fellow legislator, Democrat Patty Pansing Brooks, in Nebraska’s first congressional district.
