Michele Bachmann Presidential Campaign Under Investigation

Posted: Updated:

The campaign of former presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann is reportedly under investigation by an ethics panel on Capitol Hill.

One aide to the campaign claims Bachman illegally used money from her political action committee to pay a campaign consultant.
William McGinley, a partner at Patton Boggs law firm released a statement to CNN on Monday confirming the story.
The Minnesota congresswoman is being investigated by the Office of Congressional Ethics.
The Office of Congressional Ethics is a non partisan panel that screens potential instances of misconduct by members of the House of Representatives.
If the OCE decides the matter needs to be looked at further, it can refer the case to the House Ethics Committee which will determine if there should be an official investigation.
