Hillary’s Story
After serving for 20 years as a United States District Court Judge, Jack Tarpley Camp, Jr. moved into semi-retirement. BUT, when he’s engaged in illegal activity at an adult entertainment establishment, the judge’s arrest and subsequent fallout becomes a case of poetic justice.

Tina’s Story
Tea Party favorite Ken Sorenson ran and won an Iowa House of Representative seat in 2008 followed by an Iowa Senate win in 2011. BUT when rumors swirl about alleged illegal payouts, Sorenson finds himself steeped in hot water.
