Dept. of not really news, Michele Bachmann is kind of crazy
Former Aide: Michele Bachmann Had “Unnatural Relationship” With Debate Coach
Michele Bachmann's high-profile debate coach, Brett O'Donnell, developed an "unnatural" and
"Rasputin-like" relationship with his candidate during her failed 2012 presidential campaign,
another former aide told BuzzFeed, a charge O'Donnell denies.
"He prohibited her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, from sleeping in the same room with wife
while on the campaign trail," Waldron said in an email to BuzzFeed. "He prohibited legendary
consultants Ed Rollins and Ed Goeas from attending debate prep sessions. He told her when
she could get off the bus (Waterloo event with Gov. Perry), he wrote most of the words that
came out of her mouth, he wrote all of her speeches."
Waldron described the last week of Bachmann's failed campaign as "the most painful days to
imagine," saying Bachmann still has not recovered from her time with O'Donnell.
"Brett held her captive day after day, speech after speech, etc. in the back of the bus during
the 99-county tour. By the end, she was broken emotionally, mentally, and slept in her private
cabin in the back of the bus. I do not know if she has ever recovered," Waldron said.

2. I bet Marcus was enraged
He couldn't sleep with his beard, I mean wife. Sounds like this man treated her like a well trained dog. Did he tell her when to shit too.

4. Now why would Michele need the company of another man?
Personally I think somebody's private life is just that private but
for Michele to be out loud and proud as a being anti gay and her
husband's "fixing the gays" business I think calling out Marcus seems
