Politicus USA: Michele Bachmann Refuses to Pay Employees Unless They Promise to Hide Illegal Activities
-By Hrafnkell Haraldsson
January 12, 2013- Americans should be asking themselves this weekend why Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who won re-election this past November as a member of the House of Representatives, is refusing to pay five of her staffers for the work they did helping her try to win the presidential nomination.
Salon reported Thursday,
Peter Waldron, her controversial former national field coordinator, told Salon the dispute started when former Iowa straw poll staffers refused to sign a nondisclosure agreement that would bar them from discussing any “unethical, immoral, or criminal activity” they witnessed on the campaign with police or reporters.
What kind of employer, save perhaps for the mob, asks an employee to sign a statement barring them from discussing “unethical, immoral, or criminal activity’? Just what kind of activities was Michele Bachmann engaged in during her failed presidential run?
It will be remembered that Bachmann’s campaign was a shoddy and poorly run affair. God apparently wanted her to be president but did not provide her with the requisite skills to see his will done. We can assume God did not tell her to lie, cheat, and steal, to accomplish that goal, though one does have to question the Almighty’s judgment if he picked Bachmann.
