The former chief of staff for Rep. MIchele Bachmann is set to testify that her presidential campaign paid a Kansas politico to work her, in violation of campaign ethics.
Rep. Michele Bachmann has found herself tangled in an investigation by the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) for allegations of improperly transferring campaign funds.
The Washington Times analyzed a decade of congressional pay records to find the offices with the highest turnover rates and found 27 members who — over a period of four or more years — lost an annual average of at least one-third of their staff who sought calmer pastures or were fired.
Iowa State Sen. Kent Sorenson, former chief of staff Andy Parrish and another — an aide, Peter Waldron — are scheduled to appear before an Iowa Senate ethics panel and describe the alleged inappropriate payments: Mr. Parrish and Mr. Waldron say the campaign paid Mr. Sorenson $7,500 a month, Politico reported.
"Investigators came [and] interviewed me and are interviewing other staff members across the country," Peter Waldron, one of the former staffers, told the Daily Beast.
