Michele Bachmann former aide says she OK'd pay to Iowa senator

by - April 23, 2013

Minnesota Republican congresswoman Michele Bachmann approved payments to her 2012 presidential campaign manager in Iowa but did not know the arrangement might have violated the state's Senate ethics rules, her former chief of staff says in an affidavit. Andy Parrish filed the affidavit and supporting emails Monday, April 22, confirming allegations made by ex-Bachmann aide Peter Waldron. Waldron, who was Bachmann's national field coordinator from July 2011 to January 2012, has said the campaign paid Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, R-Milo, $7,500 a month for six months to serve as her campaign chief in that state. Waldron alleges the payments were funneled through a political action committee with ties to Bachmann. Iowa Senate
