Federal Ethics Investigation Into Bachmann Election Campaign Now Focusing On Marcus Bachmann

In 2011, Michele Bachmann claimed God spoke to her and told her to run for president. Apparently, the Lord works in mysterious ways. The Minnesota Congresswoman’s presidential campaign was a disaster on the inside even more than on the outside, as evidenced by all the ethics investigations she’s facing. Now Marcus Bachmann, the Congresswoman’s husband,  is the subject of a Federal Elections Commission investigation, according to the New York Times.

“The latest is a federal inquiry into whether an outside ‘super PAC’ improperly coordinated strategy with Mrs. Bachmann’s campaign staff, including her husband, in violation of election laws,” the Times reports:

In a complaint to the F.E.C. in February, Peter Waldron, a Florida Republican operative hired to enlist evangelical Iowa pastors, described overhearing the president of the super PAC ask Brett O’Donnell, a senior campaign adviser, about radio and TV stations.

In an interview on Thursday, Mr. Waldron said Mr. O’Donnell had replied, “I’ll call you tomorrow.”

Election law prohibits substantial coordination, though not all contacts, between campaigns and super PACS, Mr. Ryan said.

Mr. Waldron, who calls himself a whistle-blower, also disclosed an e-mail from Mr. Bachmann describing a phone call Mr. Bachmann made to a donor asking for $7,000. In the e-mail, Mr. Bachmann wrote that the donor had agreed to give the money through the super PAC. He concluded: “Praise the Lord!! Thank you Peter for your servant leadership.”

Mr. Ryan said the call appeared to violate a rule against campaign staff members raising more than $5,000 for a super PAC.

Regular readers of The New Civil Rights Movement are all too familiar with Peter Waldron, Bachmann’s evangelical outreach director who has ties to a top advocate of Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill.

Even the Times notes Waldron “has a controversial past,” and adds:

In 2006 he was jailed briefly in Uganda for possession of assault rifles, according to news reports. In the 1990s he led a Florida youth charity that received more than $600,000 in state and local grants before it collapsed amid questions about its effectiveness, according to The St. Petersburg Times, now The Tampa Bay Times.

But there’s so much more.

Waldron, who one year before the 2012 elections announced that the Holy Ghost had told him Michele Bachmann is the one for president, just published a new book, Bachmannistan: Behind The Lines, that claims Rep. Bachmann fired a staffer who had seven children, and another on the way, on Christmas eve.

Christian family values?

Take another look at the photo of the Bachmanns. Note that Marcus apparently has a limp wrist and that, facially, he looks like a little elderly woman. I am beginning to believe the stories that circulated about him being a closet case, just doing the "reparative therapy" at tax-payers' expense to keep up a ruse of being str8. I wouldn't be surprised if Michelle hasn't been sleeping with Ann Coulter, too.

she will go to prison met up with some big womyn who will teach her all about the birds and bees. and her husband can have his boy toy over and they can have a sleepover….

he is as gay as they come, ever listen to him talk….

this will be the greatest downfall ever, can't stand this crazy bat shit lady, she really is a very stupid idiot….

Reparative didn't work for Mrs. Bachmann either. It was an utter failure when she went to Mr. Bachmann's hospital so she could become a man. Coulter had gone and it evidently was quite successful for ger going from a man to a woman. Bachmann knew that she's as good as any Coulter could ever be. Bachmann is now talking with a USMC recruiter about joining so they can make a man out of her. She wants to be included as one of the few, the proud, and the brave. She wants to be one mean, killing machine for the 2016 presidential race.

Whenever I leave a message on the phone of a bigot who is in the news, I use my character "Marcus Bachmann" to deliver it. Imagine the most lisping, effeminate middle aged closeted gay you can, who calls the bigots and supports them for doing "God's work" and condemns "those filthy homosexuals spreading their AIDS juice all over everything." I think my calls have blown more than a few minds,
