Bachmann’s New Hampshire staff resign

The pint-sized presidential hopeful from Minnesota suffered a damaging and embarrassing setback when most of her staff in the first-in-the-nation primary state resigned en masse. I’m sorry I couldn’t find anything as witty to follow Newtiny on the Bounty. My bad.

Multiple news outlets in the region are reporting that at least four of her staff have handed in their badges which comes at a time that has seen other prominent defections from her seemingly struggling campaign.

It also appears the Congresswoman was one of the last to find out telling Radio Iowa: “We have called staff in New Hampshire to find out where that came from and the staff have said that isn’t true, so I don’t know if this is just a bad story that’s being fed by a different candidate or campaign.”

However, whilst the Founder of the House Tea Party Caucus was taking shots at journalists and her competitors, her senior New Hampshire adviser Jeff Chidester confirmed his resignation, and that of three others, to the New Hampshire Union-Leader. Rumours are one has already enrolled in the Perry campaign. Well, easy-come easy-go!
