Hilarious. Michelle couldn't even PAY people to support her. And when she did, they jumped ship and went to Ron Paul. What do the people in her congressional district see that no one else in the country can wrap their mind around?

I was so enjoying no Bachmann in the news for weeks and weeks. Can't we just sweep this little kerfuffle under the rug and forget about it?

"Alleges Improper Payments"...does not mean that she is guilty! The former aid is a disgruntled ex-employee and is using this issue to grind and axe. No proof here...just heresay.

This alleged corruption should be investigated as un-American and brought the attention of the Intelligence Committee.

"See what that emporer in waiting Obama has brought--he forced a woman was spoken to by God to get so confused she engaged in possible illegal activities." --------- Got that right. Must be one of those "War on Woman" things I keep hearing about drilled into my head. Yawn.

That's "alleged" disgruntled employee. I always find that to be such a lazy excuse that whenever someone makes a complaint against a company etc, they are always "disgruntled".

Looking forward to seeing this play out. Is there anyone in politics who is a bigger hypocrite than Michelle Bachmann? I don't think so. Looks like she might have to go back to collecting federal farm subsidies....good thing she wasn't successful in getting the feds to cut those off.
