When Michele Bachmann entered the nomination race for the 2012 GOP race for President I supported her. Bachmann is a Tea Party Conservative and a Social Conservative with a strong Christian foundation. Regardless of Leftist Dems, a Left oriented MSM and Establishment Republicans being against her Bachmann survived the smearing of a Presidential campaign and a huge push to defeat her as a Congresswoman.
From the recent emails I am receiving from her campaign Bachmann perceives the relentless anti-Conservative/anti-Christian Dems are coming after her again in her 2014 reelection campaign.
The investigation against Bachmann is the political motivated agenda to discredit or embarrass Rep. Bachmann to make her a more plausible target for Leftist money to defeat her in 2014. Check this out:
Congressional ethics investigators are pursuing allegations of financial impropriety in U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann’s 2012 presidential campaign, according to several attorneys and former staffers involved in the case.
A spokesman for Bachmann’s congressional office suggested that the disclosure of the new ethics review, though it originates with staffers in her own campaign, was engineered by political adversaries.
“Unfortunately, the disclosure of the existence of this review is a predictable and politically motivated attack by Congresswoman Bachmann’s political adversaries in an attempt to disparage her reputation as a top target of the DCCC [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] and Democratic Super PACs,” said Bachmann spokesman Dan Kotman. “They are willing to do or say anything in an attempt to defeat her in 2014.”
William McGinley, a top GOP Washington attorney representing Bachmann’s campaign in the new inquiry and before the FEC, said, “There are no allegations that the congresswoman engaged in any wrongdoing.” He added that “We … are confident that at the end of their review the OCE board will conclude that Congresswoman Bachmann did not do anything inappropriate.” (Michele Bachmann under congressional ethics investigation; by KEVIN DIAZ , Star Tribune; Updated: March 25, 2013 – 11:26 PM – READ THE REST)
Below is one of those emails imploring for your support on a national basis rather than just her District constituents in Minnesota.

John — It’s starting.
The Democrats, with the help and dollars from major liberal organizations like the DCCC are gearing up to spend millions to defeat me.
You see, they are already telling reporters I am on the top of their list and I need your immediate help to fight back.
John, the fact that the Democrat’s are gearing up so early before next year’s election is not good news. They will raise and spend millions to defeat me, and I won’t be able to fight back without your help.
I sent you the below email on Tuesday, and I need to know I have your support.
The Democrat’s are watching our campaign like hawks, and your actions today to support my campaign will show them our strength and unity.
You know that I will always stand up and fight for our shared conservative values, but in order to continue to be your voice in Washington, I need the strongest campaign war chest and grassroots network as possible. That’s why I need your URGENT support today!
Please read my email below and let me know I can depend on your support with a personal contribution for $35, $70, $100, $250, $500 or more to Bachmann for Congress today.
Thank you and God bless.

Subject: It’s starting
The national Democrats would love nothing more than to see me lose — and they have already decided to pull out all the stops to make that happen.
In fact just yesterday, Roll Call — a Capitol Hill political publication — is hinting that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is telling reporters that I’m on the top of their list for defeat. (The DCCC is Nancy Pelosi’s campaign slush fund.)
You see, the DCCC has already identified my district and campaign as one they are targeting for defeat in 2014. And you can bet they will have the resources to go all out. In 2012 alone, the DCCC raised and spent more than $184 million dollars to defeat Republicans.
And, in addition to working overtime to defeat our campaign, they have willing accomplices in the liberal media to continue their dirty work by misrepresenting and misleading voters all over the national airwaves.
John, I need your help to fight back.
I cannot do this without you. Our campaign is entirely funded by the donations of my supporters and close friends like yourself.
You see, the DCCC has it all wrong. They think that if they can defeat me, they will have defeated our values. But, our campaign isn’t about me- it’s about US. It’s about restoring our government and economy, protecting our shared constitutional conservative values, eliminating the wasteful spending in Washington, and ensuring our conservative voice is heard.
We cannot let the DCCC undo all of the great work we have done in the past. The actions we take today will determine our future.
If the national Democrats and the liberal media are going to start campaigning against me this early — then you and I must start this early as well.
And that’s exactly why I’m writing you today.
You have been a loyal supporter and friend, but your continued support has never been more important. The ultra-liberals at the DCCC are now openly targeting my race, and we need to fight back.
Thank you for standing with me at the outset of what promises to be an exciting year.
PS. I need your urgent support. The fact that the DCCC is working this early to defeat our campaign, proves that they will pull out all the stops this election cycle. We must work hard today to prove we are going to fight back with everything we have. Please follow this link to show your support and make your most generous contribution of $25, $50, $100 or more today. Thanks.
Obama and Leftist Minions Fear Bachmann
