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

8. No, but the guy she paid off is . . .
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.
