    Faces or there might be one? There's a difference. Subjective.

    Not substantive???

    You would have to demonstrate that this particular confidentiality agreement is any different from any of the other tens of thousands of confidentiality agreements out there.

    And you havent.

    DID YOU READ IT??? The criminal investigation is ongoing on a previous database listing actions…

    One of those involved in the payment dispute is Barbara Heki, who sued the campaign last year over the use of a database listing the names and e-mail addresses of thousands of Christian home-school families. Although the campaign eventually agreed to pay $2,000 for the list, the lawsuit continues, as does a separate criminal investigation.
    The article mentions nothing about criminal investigation on the new accusations…

    This thread is a good example of what has become glaringly obvious about the Democrat Party; They do not present ideas or plans, nor do they reveal their agenda. Rather, their campaigns and all wins come from personal attacks on their opponents. Were they to present their agenda for a popular vote, they would lose immediately.

    Except, of course, for the votes of the Low Information, ever braying "American Citizens" who always worship Obama.

    I think it goes more to the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the GOP, which has been taken over by freaks like Bachmann.

    She's a clown, and apparently she'll soon to be clown in jail. Like other GOP leaders.

    "Waldron is an evangelist who was enlisted by the Bachmann campaign to reach out to Christian conservatives — and he charged last week that Bachmann campaign officials withheld payments to staffers who refused to sign confidentiality agreements."

    So which hypocritical evangelist is lying, Waldron or Bachmann?

    Don't know, neither do you.
