“While [Gingrich] was taking that money, I was fighting against Fannie and Freddie,” Bachmann said on Wednesday.

It turns out that while she was “fighting” them, she was also taking their money.

To be sure, there is a big difference between being paid millions to consult for the group — and taking campaign contributions from Freddie PAC. Still, it appears Bachmann may be living in a bit of a glass house here — especially for someone who promised “no surprises.”

How is it legal for a GSE to give money to an elected official? This blows my mind.
