he agency is investigating alleged violations by Bachmann's 2012 presidential campaign

BY JILLIAN RAYFIELD

The FBI is reportedly looking into allegations that Michele Bachmannís 2012 presidential campaign committed campaign finance violations, adding to the multiple ongoing probes of her campaign and raising the possibility that there were criminal violations involved.

The Minnesota Post reports:

The FBI joins the Office of Congressional Ethics, the Federal Elections Commission and an Iowa state Senate ethics committee in probing whether Bachmannís presidential campaign paid an Iowa state senator from her MichelePAC, a fund that should not have been used for campaign expenses, and whether the state senator stole the email list of an Iowa home-school group from another Bachmann staffer, Barbara Hekki, prior to the Iowa caucuses in January, 2012.

Andy Parrish, former Bachmann chief of staff and one of the directors of Bachmannís Iowa GOP presidential campaign, will be interviewed by the FBI, according to his attorney, John Gilmore.
