Complaint Against Bachmann at Federal Election Commission

Peter Waldron, who was national field coordinator for Michele Bachmann’s failed 2012 presidential campaign, has filed a complaint against her at the FEC.*

He claims that she improperly used money from MichelePAC to pay fundraiser Guy Short for work on the presidential campaign.

He also claims that she hid payments to Kent Sorenson, her Iowa chairman.  As an Iowa state senator, Sorenson couldn’t legally be paid for work on a presidential campaign.
