Vincent Fumo faces 4 1/2 years in prison for defrauding the Senate and two nonprofits of several million dollars.
A Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman says Fumo arrived Monday morning at the low-security prison in Ashland, Ky. Ashland is about 400 miles from Fumo's home in Philadelphia.
The 66-year-old Fumo was a wealthy Democratic power broker during a 30-year state Senate career.
In July, he was sentenced to 55 months in prison. The sentence is well under the guideline range of about 10 to 12 years.
Co-defendant Ruth Arnao, a longtime Fumo aide, is also set to start a one-year prison term Monday.
