Really? getting arrested for theft and you work in Congress? This is really lame …. yes, I know, innocent until proven guilty, but it is pretty lame to even get accused of it.
And to Congresswoman Bachmann’s critics, it is NOT Congresswoman Bachmann who was arrested…it is someone who works in her office.
Below is from my FNC colleague Chad Pergram:
Urgent: Fox First: Top Bachmann aide arrested and charged in connection with thefts in Rayburn House Office Building
Fox has learned that Javier Sanchez, senior legislative assistant to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has been arrested in connection with a string of thefts in the Rayburn House Office Building.
It’s unclear what that means.
Sanchez is one of Bachmann’s top aides and is often seen with her around the Capitol. He was with her multiple times last week. Unclear if he has been fired, et al.
Could the Justice beat please reach out for info on the arrest, court dates, is he free, bail, et al?
