Ex-Staffer Says Bachmann Campaign Made Illegal Payments

Peter Waldron, a former campaign aide for Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), claims the one-time presidential candidate hid thousands of dollars in payment to an Iowa state senator so he wouldn't violate Senate ethics rules, the Quad City Times reports.

Waldron claims the payments were funneled through a third party. If true, the alleged scheme may violate the Senate ethics rule against state senators being employed by political campaigns.
