Former PiS senator

Stanisław Kogut was born on October 29, 1953 in Białka Niżna in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship.

He was elected senator in 2005 from the Law and Justice list in the Nowy Sącz district. In the 2007 elections, he again obtained a senatorial mandate. Also in the 2011 elections, he was re-elected from the PiS list to the upper house of parliament. He repeated his election victory in 2015. In the 2019 elections, he failed to win re-election.

In January 2020, the Central Anticorruption Bureau detained the former senator. It was related to the investigation of multi-million bribes, conducted by agents from the Krakow branch of the CBA.
