Bachmann staffers were prohibited from "discussing any immoral, unethical or criminal behavior...."

...Peter Waldron, who served as Bachmann’s national field coordinator, says that the former employees were repeatedly told they would be paid. But long after the campaign ended, still without their payments, he says they were asked to sign non-disclosure agreements that would prohibit them from discussing any immoral, unethical or criminal behavior with the media, the police or an attorney. “This agreement came out of left field,” he said. ...

2. They just need to redefine themselves

as retroactive volunteers.

Either that or pull a Willard & retroactively resign from the campaign.

4. That's an unconscionable requirement and thus would be null and void.

 

You cannot contractually require somebody to not speak of illegal activities with police or attorneys.

11. And anybody who was stupid enough to sign on with her

 

will probably be so stupid that they don't understand that no contract can require you to not discuss any potentially illegal or unethical activities with your own attorney or with the authorities.

In fact, refusal to do so makes them an accessory to any criminal activity.

6. So This NDA Insinuates Bachmann's Campaign Engaged In Immoral, Unethical & Criminal Behavior?...

Sounds to me as it is somewhat an admission that Bachmann's campaign activities should be investigated.

Also - anyone who votes for her in the future knowing this - should have their head examined.

7. I find it interesting that she demands them to sign a form. Now I want to know what is

 

she hiding? I hope these people sue her and I am sure they will win. You don't ask people to sign this disclosure form after the election is done I would think. But then again it's Bachmann. Nuff said.

8. Hard to feel ....

.. any compassion for anyone that would associate with The Batshit Crazy Lady, in any way, shape, or form.

Is it even legal to make someone sign a form to hide illegal activities? Sounds like the very definition of Criminal Conspiracy to me.
