14. Bobby Thompson also was a major contributor to Michele Bachmann:

As reported in 2010:


A tax-exempt Navy veterans group founded by one of Michele Bachmannís top campaign contributors may be under investigation by the IRS at the request of U.S. Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA). The group is under investigation in at least six states and has been banned from operating in at least three.

Webb has asked the IRS to investigate the U.S. Navy Veterans Association, a national charitable veterans organization founded by Bobby Thompson of Tampa, FL, after reading ďalarming reportsĒ that the charityís directors cannot be located and its multimillion-dollar expenditures cannot be accounted for.The U.S. Navy Veterans Association was founded by Thompson, who donated $10,000 to Rep. Michele Bachmannís campaign at her Minneapolis event with former halftime governor Sarah Palin April 7. Thompson was only one of six individuals who ponied up the 10 large to have his picture taken with the Tea Party darlings.

The Dump Bachmann website also posts a photo of Bachmann with Edwin Cain, a registered lobbyist for Thompson's phony charity, as it appears on Bachmann's congressional website:
