I try to track up with the deluge of movement conservative insanity, so you, dear reader, don’t have to. For some time now, batshitloonitarian Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has been embroiled in a contract dispute with former employees and refuses to pay them. What’s interesting is why she won’t pay (boldface mine):
Over a year after she dropped out, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann has refused to pay five staffers from her failed presidential bid, according to a former top campaign official. Peter Waldron, her controversial former national field coordinator, told Salon the dispute started when former Iowa straw poll staffers refused to sign a nondisclosure agreement that would bar them from discussing any “unethical, immoral, or criminal activity” they witnessed on the campaign with police or reporters.
Waldron said the staffers are owed a mere $5,000, and that Bachmann has more than $2 million in her campaign account, but has refused to pay unless the staffers sign the agreement.
I realize grifters gotta grift, but I would think this nondisclosure agreement is unenforceable.
The long conservative con rolls on…
