What story is more riveting in the Twin Cities tonight? 1. Michelle Bachmann's purported campaign violations? or 2. Ted Mondale's association with convicted felon Tom Petters? How delicious?.....a conundrum in Minnesota divisive politics c. 2013! ;-) Bill...Red Cork in a Sea of Blue

Michelle Bachmann has proven to be ignorant about virtually every topic she has ever addressed; it is sad----but not shocking or surprising----that she has also proven to be completely ignorant about campaign finance law, despite her status as an attorney. When will her district finally realize that Michelle Bachmann is only interested in her own personal advancement, and cares nothing about the people, problems, or issues facing Minnesota?

STSCM_SS_SW: If you could point out any bias or blatant political motivation, point out ANY evidence for your claims, maybe somebody would take what you say for more than garbage. ... ... Personally, I cannot wait until Michele once again blames "liberal Democrats" for all this, even though it's her own people making all the claims and providing the details. Does that mean Shelly hired "liberal Democrats" to run her campaign? Shelly... you can't have it both ways and we'll be watching to see whose nose grows the most in coming weeks. Who is the REAL Pinocchio???

It is telling that the only defense her supporters offer on this site is that the media is biased, yet they offer no refutation of any of the accusations. Do you people think the 'libs' somehow infiltrated Bachmann's campaign staff and members of the GOP to come up with these charges?? C'mon, try harder!

Seriously? Did any of you Libs read the article? This is about a elected official IN IOWA that misled or was ignorant of that states laws...not funny business about Bachman. It's clear that Michelle is a real problem for the media and liberals given the "witch hunt" (no offense Ms. Bachman) they're trying to perpetuate.

Unless she is "First" charged with a crime, arrested and hauled off to jail, I wouldn't worry too much about this.... This is so typical in politics. I am far more concerned about our rep's being allowed to use "insider" trader information to make millions off the stock market, while average joe is loosing hit shirt daily on wallstreet and their 401k is going nowhere.... That's a far bigger travesty!!!

@kallman11 Did any of you "Cons" read the article? This was supporters/fundraisers of Michelle using third parties to exchange money in an attempt to hide it. By the way the super secret biased liberal media out to get Bachmann meeting we had planned is rescheduled for the weekend due to snow.
