TDF Comments: Unlike regular citizens who must pay their bills on time to maintain a decent credit score that reflects on their character, ability to obtain a job, keep a job, rent an apartment or buy a car -- politicians, like Bachmann can pay their campaign debt "whenever they feel like it -- or never".
The story (Huffington Post)
...Paul Ryan, the associate legal counsel at the nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center, said he's not surprised Bachmann is concentrating on building cash for her congressional re-election effort rather than paying off her presidential campaign debt.
"Any politician's first priority is going to be fueling their future political ambitions, not dealing with their failed past political ambitions," Ryan said.
Ryan said Bachmann can pay her presidential campaign debt whenever she wants to. Some campaigns never pay off their debt. Bachmann insists she'll make good on her presidential campaign bills.
Ryan said she can worry about the debt after she's re-elected to Congress.
"Raising money for old debt isn't much fun. That being said, when someone remains in office they are typically capable of raising money to retire old debt as well as to fund future campaigns because what a lot of donors really want is access to and influence over office holders and they don't much care what the money is being used for," Ryan said.

The woman is obviously in need of mental health care and the social workers who investigated her probably need to rethink their position.
There are plenty of people who have lost their jobs or who cannot find jobs who need food stamps and healthcare that they cannot receive -- yet OctoMom is allowed to receive money for photo-spreads and phone sex while more and more reports show she isn't taking care of her children.
Republican extreme conservatives are bound to use this as yet another example of how the food stamp program is abused.
Let's get the facts straight. There are plenty of people who are on very fixed incomes who don't even qualify for food stamps or subsidized basic health care.
Underemployed families who used to have better paying jobs are paying off upside-down mortgages, paying for their kids food with whatever they got and are trying to make it to the end of the recession -- they don't qualify for food stamps.
This woman is doing harm to her kids and to other well deserving families who may find themselves in need of temporary help during a period of unemployment or disability.
The social workers should revisit this case and get this woman off the dole while providing a safer haven for her kids.
