LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – A Lexington woman has conditionally pleaded guilty to perjury and lying to the FBI in connection to a scheme to get around campaign finance laws.

It involves a Lexington City Council race.

Elizabeth Stormbringer was accused of donating to a campaign for her boss, Timothy Wellman, to get around a $2,000 donation limit.

Wellman has already been convicted in federal court.

Investigators said she eventually admitted guilt after lying to FBI agents and the grand jury.
