BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- A south-central Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to conspiring to buy votes in the 2006 general election in Monroe County.
The U.S. attorney's office says 63-year-old Tony A. Gumm of Tompkinsville, pleaded guilty Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge E. Robert Goebel in Bowling Green.
He was indicted last June with five other Tompkinsville residents.
Prosecutors contend the group conspired to elect Gumm, who was a write-in candidate for county magistrate, and other candidates.
Gumm faces up to 15 years in prison, a $750,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.
Sentencing is set for July 21 in Bowling Green.
