Rep. Michele Bachmann hit former Speaker Newt Gingrich hard on Wednesday for receiving consulting fees from mortgage giant Freddie Mac, but it turns out Bachmann herself received campaign contributions from The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporations (Freddie Mac) political action committee during the 2007-2008 cycle.
While [Gingrich] was taking that money, I was fighting against Fannie and Freddie, Bachmann said on Wednesday.
It turns out that while she was fighting them, she was also taking their money.

None of our conservative candidates are nearly as flawed as the Marxist and Romney.
The journalistas are axing and re-axing ALL the non-romneys, they want it over NOW...and their boy secured in his destiny as the(ir) nominee. So they can ax him. Wake up, America! Make no mistake, we are witnessing a coup via a stolen ‘election’.
Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once its realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy. ― Ron Paul
What, they held a gun to Bachmann’s head and said take the freddie money toots or the ole guy is going to get it...
Any idea exactly what Bachmann claims she did to ‘fight them’ and when?
The difference between a campaign contribution to a sitting Congresswoman and a consulting contract with a former Congressman is the Congresswoman can vote for your interest and the Congressman has to write occasional reports (none of which, to my knowledge, have surfaced from Newt, hence his stance that he was NOT a lobbyist). If one surfaces, that will be different..
Sarah, please come back.

Paul above scandal, hypocrisy, and corruption? LOL. It is funny how his fans make a Christ like character out of him, but he was ridden with scandal, hypocrisy and corruption while most of these other politicians were still in diapers.
You should look up some time what happened in his 1988 campaign, why he and Lew Rockwell were locked out of their own offices by the Libertarian Party (locks changed and all) and why they had staffers thrown in jail.
Except that Ron Paul believes our actions caused 9/11 and he is for legalizing pot hence the crazed lunatic following.

Here’s the problem: People are beginning to use similar arguments for their decision to not vote for Cain, and now for Newt. Apparently to a growing number of FReepers, four more years of Obama is more acceptable than some of our GOP candidates.
This is why I’m beginning to believe that our party like our country is dying from within. I think we’ve already doomed ourselves for this next election.
The Left must laugh their A$$es off at us.
Michelle didn't take money from Fannie Mae. She took money from contributors who gave their own money to the PAC.
Good to know the sort of propaganda BS peddled by the enemy ~ they think we are all stupid of course.
Now we can challenge it appropriately ~ to wit: I knew their mothers when they were young, and I turned them down. Their daddies are all second-best and a lot of them are gay.
Sorry, but i just don’t believe that you believe that she manually reviews and approves every campaign dollar contributed to her campaign, especially before Soros pulled the plug on our economy.
Perry still has the cash and the fire in the belly. He also has the real jobs record to beat Obama with. He also has the military background to beat Obama with. He also has the governing experience and social conservatism to beat Obama with.
And just for fun he doesn't golf as a hobby but he can almost put 5 rounds in the same hole at target practice at Larue tactical.
