Bachmann Campaign Cash Scandal Grows: Alleged Secret Payoff


Bachmann Campaign Cash Scandal Grows: Alleged Secret Payoff

This is getting more interesting with each passing day:

In a notarized complaint to the Federal Election Commission, Waldron claims several violations of federal election laws by the campaign.

One pertains to Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, R-Milo, who Waldron claims was paid $7,500 a month for his role as Iowa state chairman for the Bachmann campaign. ...

Waldron claims the payments were funneled through a third party, C&M Strategies of Colorado operated by Guy Short. In essence, Waldron said, 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.

If true, the alleged scheme may violate the Senate ethics rule against state senators being employed by political campaigns.

3. Unfortunately whateveer rules or laws

there are concerning campaign cash, never seem to have any teeth.

Remember a couple of years ago after "I am not a Witch" (Christine O'Donnell) lost her race, there were allegations that she'd used her campaign money illegitimately. Haven't heard anything else.
