Rep. Michele Bachmann may not be running for office next year, but that doesn't mean she’ll leave the spotlight behind. The congresswoman will go to court on May 14, 2014, to defend herself against allegations that her campaign stole e-mail addresses from an Iowa home-schooling organization during her run for the White House. Bachmann says her decision not to run for reelection was not influenced by the impending trial. Barbara and Richard Heki say they suffered “severe emotional distress” and lost out on business opportunities because the Bachmann camp improperly sent two emails to a distribution list they found on the Hekis’s computer. Bachmann’s former campaign chairman Kent Sorenson and five other Republican staffers were also named in the lawsuit.
