Michele Bachmann: soaking the sucker supporters…

Michele Bachmann has always enjoyed the enthusiastic support of conservative voters around the country. They love her, and very often they express that love in the form of small donations to her campaigns and causes. And in election cycle after election cycle, those small donations from “regular folks” conservatives added up to such a large pile of money that Bachmann soon became the envy of other members of Congress when it came to fundraising.

Michele’s “regular folks” donors gave to her political action committee, which is called MICHELEPAC. That name is an acronym; the letters in MICHELEPAC stand for “Many Individual Conservatives Helping Elect Leaders Everywhere” Political Action Committee. It’s cute, see? And it led Michele’s “regular folks” fans and donors to believe that the donations they sent to that PAC would be used to promote the election of more “conservatives like Michele.” In fact, Michele herself told them that that is what their small donations would be used for.

But now ThinkProgress has spoiled everything by pointing out the following:

1. Bachmann’s running this “donate your money so Michele can get other conservative candidates into leadership positions” PAC, taking money from “regular folks” conservatives for that purpose…
2.…and in the first half of 2013, Michele’s PAC spent more than $250,000 of the money donated…
#.…but out of that $250,000 — only $400 went to supporting other political candidates.

…What the hell, you ask, did Michele’s PAC spend the rest of that $250,000 on?

I seem to remember from several years ago Consistent posting that he had paid $150 for a signed copy of Michele's book. He's a loon too.
