Michelle Bachmann now under investigation by the FBI
GOP representative Michelle Bachmann is currently under investigation by various agencies, including the FBI now sources say. The allegations began late in March when inquiries were made in regards to Andy Parrish, Bachmann’s chief of staff in the 2012 elections. The ethics investigation includes secret payments to an Iowa state senator and campaign aide Kent Sorenson (R), as well as “improper use of Bachmann’s leadership PAC funds to pay a political director for the campaign,” according to the Huffington Post.
Andy Parrish had sworn in an affidavit in April that Michelle Bachmann had known about those payments. Furthermore, Bachmann’s former national field coordinator Peter Waldron has now filed his own complaint where he alleges the funds were improperly funneled from Bachmann’s PAC to fund Sorenson, which he denies. The claim has caught the attention of the FBI.
