She was arrested May 18 after the broker agreed to record a meeting with Shoffner when he brought $6,000 to her home in a pie box.

FBI agents searched the home and found the cash inside a cigarette package in Shoffner's kitchen. Shoffner admitted that she accepted the payments from the broker, the FBI said in an earlier affidavit.

Shoffner was first elected treasurer in 2006 and won a second term in 2010.
