Congress launches futile search for Michele Bachmann's ethics
They just loaded a bunch of new charges on to the barge of fail that was Michele Bachmann's loser campaign for President.
The Daily Beast has learned that federal investigators are now interviewing former Bachmann campaign staffers nationwide about alleged intentional campaign-finance violations. The investigators are working on behalf of the Office of Congressional Ethics, which probes reported improprieties by House members and their staffs and then can refer cases to the House Ethics Committee.Of course, despite the boatload of law suits currently on file against the Queen of Congressional Crazies, nothing is going to happen to her. A few of her cohorts may ultimately pay some legal price but she will just plead stupidity and ignorance. Who's going to argue with that? Besides, the woman is coated with more teflon than Ronald Reagan. She gets re-elected over and over again, despite this "honor."
Bachmann holds the distinction of having a higher percentage of statements analyzed by PolitiFact determined to be outright lies—or “Pants on Fire”—than any other politician, according to a survey by The Daily Beast.And only in John Boehner's Crackpot Congress could Bachmann also be a long standing member of the House Intelligence Committee. In a sane world she would have been involuntarily committed to a locked psyche ward years ago.
