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 21st in

Bowling Green.
