Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) must be really hard to work for — even staffers who seem to do a good job end up leaving.
As Politico reported, Bachmann’s chief of staff Ron Carey, a former Minnesota GOP chairman, has now become the fifth chief of staff to quit Bachmann’s office during her mere three and a half years in Congress. A previous chief of staff had quit just this past November, and Carey was hired to be the new chief in February.
In addition, Bachmann’s campaign finance director Zandra Wolcott left the campaign, too. Think about this: Bachmann’s fundraising has been great. In the last quarter she raised a whopping $1.7 million. Her Democratic opponent Tarryl Clark only raised $910,000 — which by itself would have been impressive in this Midwestern district, but paled in comparison to Bachmann. And still, the staffers keep coming and going.
