Erin Burnett is an idiot

she said the NRA ad is o.k. because politicians "use" their kids all the time.
Her examples were:
Video of Clintons holding Chelsea's hand walking to the helicopter after the Lewinsky affair. (WTF?!)
Photo of President on the couch with his girls watching Michelle speak at the convention.

She actually compared these to the NRA's repulsive ad.
CNN seems to think if they spray her with enough phoney FeBreeze we won't smell the stench of her RW core. I can't stand her.

Michelle Bachmann accused of campaign finance violations

Ex-Bachmann aide alleges campaign finance violations

Filing says her PAC wrongly paid a longtime consultant.

WASHINGTON - A top adviser in Michele Bachmann's 2012 White House bid has filed a complaint with federal election officials alleging campaign finance violations involving her presidential campaign and the independent political action committee she leads.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint was filed Tuesday by Peter Waldron, a widely known evangelist enlisted by the Bachmann campaign for outreach to Christian conservatives. The filing follows his allegations last week that the Bachmann campaign has withheld payments to staffers who refused to sign confidentiality agreements.

Waldron, formerly Bachmann's national field coordinator, is accusing the campaign of improperly dipping into money from MichelePAC to pay longtime fundraising consultant Guy Short for presidential campaign work he performed in the critical final weeks ahead of Iowa's caucuses last year.

Waldron also alleges that the campaign concealed payments to Iowa state campaign chairman Kent Sorenson, a state senator who abruptly left the Bachmann camp to join then-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul's insurgent campaign. Under Iowa Senate rules, Waldron maintains, Sorenson could not perform paid work for a presidential campaign.
