Our favorite Congresswomen is back in the news.
Over a year after she dropped out, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann has refused to pay five staffers from her failed presidential bid, according to a former top campaign official. Peter Waldron, her controversial former national field coordinator, told Salon the dispute started when former Iowa straw poll staffers refused to sign a nondisclosure agreement that would bar them from discussing any “unethical, immoral, or criminal activity” they witnessed on the campaign with police or reporters.
Apparently, the dispute started over unsigned non-disclosure agreements after Michelle allegedly unethically acquired and used unauthorized lists of home schooling family lists for fundraising.
Reached my phone, Waldron confirmed the details and said the nondisclosure agreement stems from the campaign’s alleged misuse of an email list. A home-schooling group accused the Bachmann campaign of stealing the list, which was contained on a volunteer’s laptop, and then using it to fundraise for the campaign. The home-schooling group has sued the campaign and Waldron said there is also a criminal investigation pending, explaining that he spoke with police about the incident “several times.”Please read the rest of the article for more good material.
What we have here appears to be a failure for parties to get together and come up with a solution. Instead, the parties dig in their heels and fail to come with an agreement.
Where have I heard this before?
Oh yeah, sounds like the Tea Party.......
