    Ex-Bachmann aide alleges campaign finance violations [W:26]

    Ex-Bachmann aide alleges campaign finance violations | StarTribune.com


    Bachmann is the gift from the tea party that just keeps on giving.

    First we learned that Bachmann stiffed five staffers, refusing to pay them unless they sign a nondisclosure agreement that prohibits them them from talking to any reporters or police about any "unethical, immoral, or criminal activity" they may have witnessed during the campaign. Then, because leaking that story did not motivate Bachmann to open the checkbook and just pay bills, her former field coordinator, Peter Waldron, alleged that Bachmann was under the "Rasputin-like" mind control of her debate coach to the point of his forbidding Bachmann's husband from sleeping in the same room with her on the campaign trail (which, as we all know, must have been devastating for Marcus!).

    In today's Bachmann soap opera, Waldron has brought a complaint against Bachmann with the FEC alleging illegal campaign activities by the woman with the spine of steel.

    I'm betting she's weird enough to win the GOP presidential nomination next time around.

    I don't know, she's got a spine of steel, as she constantly points out, and she's the darling of the religious right. By 2016, only fundamentalists, who think the earth is 6000 years old, will remain in the GOP. They are the only true conservatives and they know it!

    She'll never get the nomination. She's too bat**** crazy, even for the hardcore.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    You really do shine on these debate threads don't you?

    Debate threads? He doesn't debate. He bloviates. I've tried to engage him in debate numerous times. He just avoids me and continues to post in the thread like a counterpoint was never waged against his hackery.

    I love how the little lefties enjoy stories by "former" staffers. They hate them when they work
    for the candidate and once they extract their ounce of flesh for not getting their way they are
    hero's touted out like Gods by the lefties.

    My friend, welcome to the new Tea Party Occupied Republican Party. The Real Republican Party.

    Her craziness is a plus for the fundies and knownothings that make up the GOP base.

    I love how a thread about the weirdness of another Tea party politician somehow become about me in the eyes of tea party supported like Cal.
