Michele Bachmann's ethical flexibility
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is facing more controversy for using a contact list from the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators, or NICHE, to fundraise during the 2012 Republican presidential primary.

The Sept. 4 affidavit – first reported by the Iowa Republican and obtained Friday by NBC News – was written by Bachmann's Iowa adviser Eric Woolson, and accuses former State Sen. Kent Sorenson of stealing the list from another Bachmann staffer. Sorenson was the campaign’s state chairman at the time.
Woolson isn't the first to accuse Sorenson of misusing the contact list. In July 2012, former campaign staffer Barb Heki filed a lawsuit against Bachmann, Sorenson others when she and her husband were removed from the NICHE board of directors after the incident.

2. Is she running against him, or is he running against her?
I hadn't heard she was running for Senate, and certainly Franken doesn't want to move to the House.

3. There are strong rumors that she will challange Franken for his senate seat.
Her ego knows no bounds, but I think she doesn't stand a chance against Franken. It will be fun to see her lose, if she does run.
