Someone from Michele Bachmann’s 2012 presidential campaign team stole an email list off of Barb Heki’s laptop. This list was from the evangelical home school organization for which Heki played a leadership role. She lost that role and was disgraced. She sued.
This lawsuit was a part of the pile of ethical scandals endangering Bachmann’s political future.
Today, the court scheduled the trial.
Today at 3:00AM, Bachmann released a video relating the glorious news that she wouldn’t seek reelection. Of course, this is Michele Bachmann, so it was immediately followed by seven plus minutes of the kind of utter disregard for reality we’ve come to expect from her.
We’re supposed to believe she’d have beaten Jim Graves, that it wasn’t about her scandals and blah blah blah blah …
Here’s what it very well could be about. Pay attention to the date!
A trial date has been set in an Iowa lawsuit alleging that Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., stole and misused an e-mail distribution list maintained by an Iowa home school group during her failed 2012 presidential campaign.
This morning, the seven-day trial in Heki v. Bachmann was scheduled for May 14, 2014, court records show.

Barb Heki, the woman whose email list Team Bachmann stole, will have her day in court. Bachmann’s trip to Iowa to negotiate a settlement failed utterly.
The trial will take place smack dab in the middle of Bachmann’s battle for her political life.
I’ve been blogging about Bachmann for a while now and I know enough to not listen to the [expletives deleted] coming out of her mouth, but look at what’s going on and make an educated guess.
