Ex-Campaign Chief Condemns Bachmann

Ed Rollins, Michele Bachmann’s former campaign chief, took to FoxNews.com Thursday morning to say, “Shame on you, Michele.” In an op-ed, Rollins writes that while he is pretty immune to being shocked by the crazy things that go on in politics by now, his former client’s “outrageous and false charges against a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, reaches that threshold.” Rollins is talking about the accusation brought against the wife of Anthony Weiner by Bachmann and four other Republican members of Congress, that she is responsible for the “deep penetration in the halls of our United States government” by the Muslim Brotherhood. Rollins writes that Bachmann’s accusation is “extreme and dishonest,” and acknowledges that, after working with the Minnesota representative for some time, “I am fully aware that she sometimes has difficulty with her facts, but this is downright vicious and reaches the late Senator Joe McCarthy level.”
