Did someone forget to tell the FBI that IOKIYAR?

I certainly hope so.

Mostly sounds like a bunch of her staffers were stealing from the cookie jar.

I still hope they end up on jail, but I was hoping that there'd been election fraud. Oh, well.

Really? So I guess this must be the first Bachmann article you've read in the past few months because this is just the latest series of allegations concerning irregularities with her campaign finances. Most of which involve her personally. That or you just won today's prize for early bird retard shill.

Really? Was she actively working against her critics using IRS? No?

Did she make up stories to tell to the American people and them have others tell the same stories? No?

Did she pay millions of $$$$ to a company that everyone who looked at the numbers said was a loser in an attempt to repay your financial backers? No?

Today in liberals journal of "Right and Wrong Does Not Matter, Only Right and Left", they pretend to actually care that a congress person may need to be investigated for a crime. Pay no attention to the fact that they only care because it's not a liberal being investigated and double down on that when it's a conservative they really don't like. Triple down on that when it's a conservative woman they don't like.

Your cable guy comes on Sundays?  Whenever I need the cable guy to come, it is always at least a 4 hour window right in the middle of a workday.  At best, have to take a half day off of work.

She will scream about Holder targeting her because he's trying to deflect allegations about the AP wiretapping and how it's a vendetta against her.  Seriously, she will.  I'll be glad when Holder's gone.  He's been a millstone around Obama's neck.

Will God be her co-defendant? I mean he did tell her to run. Of course I think it is because HE gets a kick out of having folks do what he says when reality should intervene (ie the greatest troll) OR (as with all followers that say God said such and such) when it doesn't come to pass "God was just testing my faith"

Why is it never "Yeah, God told me to run and now I realize it was to show me what a terrible and un-Christ person I am"

She did make up the whole "inoculations make kids retarded. I have proof from a random mother that told me so"

Not sure you could count that as having others tell the same story but, why defend a woman that is either too ignorant to do a simple fact check or just parrots anything she thinks at the moment will help her.

And is it OK if she personnel gets money from the government for farm subsidies?
Guess she doesn't mind when she gets the largesse from the government picking winners and loser.

Actually you do care about it. The fact that you bothered to post at all demonstrates this. Like all Fark Independents, you are actually  a Republican wannabe who even the GOP (with their atrociously low standards for membership) won't allow in. So you assuage your butthurt by pretending to be apolitical. How's that sour grapes thing working for you, Slappy?

Dude, you do realize getting investigated != being tried and convicted, right? Sometimes people get investigated because the police have a tip. And sometimes it's bullshiat. Sometimes it's not. It's the  job of any given law enforcement agency to check up on shiat they think isn't entirely legal. That's not like some kind of black mark on anyone, it just means the cops are doing their job.

Looks like she herped when she should have derped.

I know it's not right to wish ill on the mentally challenged, but god damn I hope she gets jail time for this.  Shes probably one of the only congress critters that actually believe their herp-derp instead of just using it as a means, and that's terrible dangerous.
