Bachmann Still Hasn’t Paid Former Campaign Staffers
More than a year after it ended, Michele Bachmann’s Presidential campaign still owes salary to several staffers:
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.
“I’m disappointed,” Waldron said. “Working with her, I know her to be a person of good faith. However, I also know that she is surrounded by what the Bible says is men of lesser sorts.” According to Waldron, who first made his allegations on Christian Newswire, Bachmann Finance Chairman James Pollack is the one dealing with the unpaid staffers. Pollack has not yet returned a request for comment.
So much for fiscal responsibility, eh?
