Disgruntled former staffer dishing dirt on Bachmann

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) doesn't usually need help to embarrass herself, but a former staffer is more than willing to help. He's putting her in the unenviable position of answering the 'so when did you stop beating your wife' question.
Bachmann hasn't paid her Iowa presidential campaign staffers because they won't sign a confidentiality agreement. Bachmann's Iowa campaign may be in legal trouble at some point because they are alleged to have used someone else's mailing list without approval. Hence the need for their silence.

Waldron airs the dirty laundry about her debate coach Brent O'Donnell characterizing their relationship as "unnatural."

Michele Bachmann's high-profile debate coach, Brett O'Donnell, developed an "unnatural" and "Rasputin-like" relationship with his candidate during her failed 2012 presidential campaign, another former aide told BuzzFeed, a charge O'Donnell denies.
Peter Waldron, an evangelical organizer who served as Iowa field coordinator for Bachmann and helped her win the Ames straw poll said O'Donnell exercised an "unusual power over Mrs. Bachmann." Waldron and other former Bachmann staff also currently say the Congresswoman has yet to pay them for debts owned from her short-lived campaign.

"He prohibited her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, from sleeping in the same room with wife while on the campaign trail," Waldron said in an email to BuzzFeed. "He prohibited legendary consultants Ed Rollins and Ed Goeas from attending debate prep sessions. He told her when she could get off the bus (Waterloo event with Gov. Perry), he wrote most of the words that came out of her mouth, he wrote all of her speeches."
