|"I'm sorry, I'm being investigated by who?"|
The FBI is investigating complaints of alleged campaign finance violations in Rep. Michele Bachmann's presidential campaign.
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."
Okay perhaps this is NOT the Teabagger Queen that MOST of us would like to see the FBI going after, but it is still a good thing that they have started to take some of these finance violations seriously and are looking at how money is spent from these PAC's.
Now you watch, if they continue forward the Right Wing will start bitching that now "Obama's FBI' has joined "Obama's IRS" in targeting the Tea Party.
Personally I think it is pretty damn clear that ALL of our criminal and regulatory agencies should be taking a long hard look at these PAC's, Right Wing politicians, and Teabagger groups.
I bet they would find tons of criminal activities if they did.
And I know JUST where they should start.
