Michele Bachmann fails again on campaign finance reports

Who's watching the books?
For a budget hawk and a former tax pro, Rep. Michele Bachmann sure seems to have an issue with math.

Maybe it's because she's got more money than she knows what to do with.

The Federal Election Commission has informed her--again--that her year-end campaign finance reports have failed to adequately account for donations.

"It has come to the attention of the Federal Election Commission that you may have failed to file the above referenced report of contributions bundled by lobbyists/registrants and lobbyist/registrant PACs as required by the Federal Election Campaign Act," wrote FEC assistant staff director Debbi Chacona to Bachmann on Feb. 17.

Bachmann needs to keep better track of her campaign finances.
Campaign finance attorney Brett Kappel told Politico the letter probably means that lobbyist political action committees reported bundling cash for Bachmann, but Bachmann failed to take the same care in her report.

The FEC came down on her three times in January for failing to properly account for about $1.5 million in contributions from small donors. Her campaign was required to itemize those donors if their contributions totaled more than $200.

Bachmann, meanwhile, is headed to a tea party gathering in Florida, where she'll doubtless be scolding the government for the way it handles its money.

Let's cut Bachmann some slack. I'm sure all of us have lost track of $1.5 million at some point.Or should I say "loost track" for Kirk's benefit?

I wonder if this will be overlooked like not paying your taxes. (Timothy Geithner)I hope she breaks the laws, this should qualify her to head the commission on campaign finance.Some people don't follow the rules = No big dealOthers don't follow the rules = Big F***ing deal

Any questions?

Thank you for defending me with a smart and reasonable statement. No questions here because you are so smart. Of course because one person did something else wrong its ok. It's why murder should never be prosecuted because of OJ Simpson. Conservatives must celebrate when other conservatives break the law because nothing preserves the rule of law like lawlessness. I join Gov. Scott Walker in calling for good conservatives like Kirk here to take to the streets dressed as union members. Rape and pillage my children for freedom!!!!!!!! All hail Koch! Liberals are nothing but greasy rats and drug-fueled mice. Watch Glen BECK FOR THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off I'm the real Michelle Bachmann. Years ago George Soros told every single Republican elected official that he would pay 1 billion dollars to whoever had most exposed conservatives as incredibly stupid racist scum that will follow any hateful politician no matter how stupid he or she was. George W. Bush zoomed to an early lead but recently me and Sarah are fighting for the top spot. I want to thank people like Kirk, I know no matter how hateful, paranoid, or stupid something I have to say is there are people like Kirk that will defend me. As you read my confession you know its true Minnesota.

I know Kirk will never believe me but that is because he's the kind of non thinking idiot that Soros based the whole bet on. I loved the part where kirk revealed what he does all day. Remember him saying: I Kirk am "such a looser that the only time I log of the many porn sites I belong to and stop masturbating is to post comments on CP." After all Kirk you are one of the longest lasting and most well known posters on CP. Thanks for giving everyone insight into your proud sexually repressed conservative life. As you know ladies nothing says fun date like an angry, conservative, porn obsessed, Glen Beck fan.

Ya, I have a question; why are you such a looser without an identity of your own. Such a looser that impersonates others. Such a looser that the only time you log of the many porn sites you belong to and stop masturbating is to post comments on CP. Such a looser that your only attention to details is the festering genital warts protruding from your penis. Such a looser you miss important details like the true spelling of Michele's name. 1 letter "l" Professor Penile fester.

And yes you penile festering piece of trash; Glenn Beck never professes to spitting the ultimate in truth. He always says: Don't trust me, Look it up!

Oh by the way, you spelled Glenn's name wrong also. Loossseerrr!
