Former Staffer Says Michele Bachmann Violated Federal Election Laws, Is Totally Wily

from Jezebel:

Katie J.M. Baker


Our favorite googly-eyed presidential failure and outrageously shitty person, Michele Bachmann, recently won WND's "Woman of the Year" award. But she won't be winning any financial prizes anytime soon, because her ex-staffers continue to come out of the woodwork with horror stories.

We've heard that Bachmann didn't pay her staffers because they wouldn't sign a sketchy confidentiality agreement. Now, former field coordinator Peter Waldron the accused terrorist/"Kill The Gays" advocate who's a real gem himself claims several violations of federal election laws by Bachmann's campaign.

According to the Quad City Times, one pertains to Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, who Waldron alleges was paid $7,500 a month for his role as Iowa state chairman for the Bachmann campaign through a third party: C&M Strategies of Colorado. Basically, that means "the Bachmann campaign would overpay C&M Strategies for its work and C&M Strategies would then cut a check to Sorenson for his work on behalf of the Bachmann campaign." ..................(more)

I think they meant she violated the Iowa State Senate's rules by paying the guy off. He is an Iowa State Senator.

No, but the guy she paid off is in the Iowa Senate. One supposes she violated the Iowa Senate's rules by paying him off.
