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.
For those wishing to catch up with the rest of the scandal, Kaili Joy Gray at DKos (big hat tip) brings you up to speed. And the litany of disgruntled Bachmann campaign aides comes as less of a surprise on the heels of a report that Bachmann is one of the worst bosses on Capitol Hill.
