Michele Bachmann's campaign organization hit for shoddy bookkeeping by FEC
Interesting news ahead of the $10,000-a-pop photo op dinner with Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin in April: Bachmann for Congress has been rapped by the Federal Election Commission for what the FEC says are "one or more contributions that appear to exceed" limits on campaign donations in the fall of 2009.
The FEC letter, which can be downloaded here, also says Bachmann for Congress didn't adequately account for the total contributions from some of its individual donors, and not all donors were identified completely.
