Bachmann not paying staffers
It seems that staffers in Iowa that worked on her failed presidential campaign and were told they would be paid are still waiting. What I find most interesting in this story from The Washington Post can be found in the second paragraph (bold face mine) below.

Quote:The presidential campaign of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is refusing to pay five Iowa staffers and asking that they sign non-disclosure agreements, a former campaign aide has alleged.

Peter Waldron, who served as Bachmann’s national field coordinator, says that the former employees were repeatedly told they would be paid. But long after the campaign ended, still without their payments, he says they were asked to sign non-disclosure agreements that would prohibit them from discussing any immoral, unethical or criminal behavior with the media, the police or an attorney. “This agreement came out of left field,” he said.


Much more at the link.

Why would someone need a clause prohibiting talking to the police or an attorney about possible criminal activity?

Somebody wake up the Iowa Democratic Party and get them to doing some digging. This could get interesting.
