Bachmann Campaign Accused Of Making Illegal Payments

Peter Waldron, who used to work for Rep. Michele Bachmann, says she hid thousands of dollars in payments to an Iowa state senator so he would not appear to violate ethics rules.

Peter Waldron served as national field coordinator for the Bachmann for President campaign from July 2011 to January 2012. In a notarized complaint to the Federal Election Commission, Waldron claims several violations of federal election laws by the campaign.

One pertains to Iowa state Sen. Kent Sorenson, R-Milo, who Waldron claims was paid $7,500 a month for his role as Iowa state chairman for the Bachmann campaign.

“I’m not talking about any of this,” Sorenson said when reached at his home Thursday afternoon. “I know nothing about how people were paid in the campaign.”
