FBI Investigating Bachmann Now

Things just went from bad to worse for Rep. Michele Bachmann. In addition to the FEC and the Office of Congressional Ethics, the FBI has now joined the investigations into campaign finance violations during her failed 2012 presidential run.

The FBI joins the Office of Congressional Ethics, the Federal Elections Commission and an Iowa state Senate ethics committee in probing whether Bachmann’s presidential campaign paid an Iowa state senator from her MichelePAC, a fund that should not have been used for campaign expenses, and whether the state senator stole the email list of an Iowa home-school group from another Bachmann staffer, Barbara Hekki, prior to the Iowa caucuses in January, 2012.

Andy Parrish, former Bachmann chief of staff and one of the directors of Bachmann’s Iowa GOP presidential campaign, will be interviewed by the FBI, according to his attorney, John Gilmore.

“I can confirm that Andy Parrish has been contacted by the FBI for a scheduled interview next week,” Gilmore said. “He will cooperate fully.”

Those damn Muslims must have infiltrated the FBI too!

    Nah, not mooslins. This is clearly the work of the Space Reptiles beaming false information into the brains of the FBI agents from the secret reptilian base in the midst of Saturn’s Rings.

    I am surprised that our Republican governor Branstad hasn’t quashed the Iowa Senate investigation. That reptile beam must have got him.

    Occam’s Razor, dude. Plainly enough, the IRS targeting scandal has spread to the Office of Congressional Ethics, the FEC, an Iowa state senate committee, and the FBI. All of them – ALL OF THEM, I TELL YOU – targeting Bachmann because she’s a Republican, a Christian, a conservative, and a tinfoil hat-carrying member of the Tea Party.

    Poor Missy.

    Benghazi payback is a bitch!

    or some other sentence with most of the words in it.

    My prediction:
    No violations will be discovered. Not one.

    Final Report, FEC, Office of Congressional Ethics & FBI Investigation on Bachmann, Campaign Finance Anomalies:
    We, the above, find that she’s more stupid than crooked and more ignorant than corrupt. Also, the subject kept referring to the investigators, above, as “Muslim Brotherhoods”, which is all kinds of messed up.
     
    In conclusion, as such, and ergo facto (quid pro quo, esq.), the House is the safest place to keep her, if only for the LOLs.

    This is the upper echelons of the GoP pushing out the people who actually drank the koolaid.

    they will replace her with someone who says similar shit, but doesn’t actually believe it.

    just you watch.

    nope. they wouldn’t have leaked FBI involvement unless there was a concerted effort to get rid of her now.

    this is how it works.
