Bachmann calls media coverage of her N.H. troubles irresponsible

When multiple media outlets reported Friday that Michele Bachmann’s entire campaign staff in New Hampshire had departed, Bachmann went on the defensive, blaming the media for fabricating the story. As it turned out, Bachmann had lost two of her five campaign staffers in New Hampshire, but nobody told her until after the press started calling.

Still, Bachmann had sharp words for the media, calling them “irresponsible” and “reprehensible.”

“That is a shocking story to me,” Bachmann told Radio Iowa on Friday evening. “I don’t know where that came from. 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. I have no idea where this came from, but we’ve made calls and it’s certainly not true.”

Radio Iowa’s O. Kay Henderson followed up, asking if Bachmann had had any defections from the campaign.

“Not to our knowledge,” Bachmann said. “We’re trying to call everyone and find out if there’s any truth to the story. Everyone that we’ve gotten a hold of has said that they were shocked as well. There’s no truth to that story, so this is a rumor and I think it’s highly reprehensible for the media to publish a story without calling us, the campaign, to even find out if that’s true. This is what’s really wrong with politics. It’s highly irresponsible for media to spread stories and print stories that aren’t verified and aren’t true. I think this is wrong.”

As Bachmann denied any campaign staff had left as of Friday night, WMUR, the news outlet that broke the story that all her Granite State staffers had quit, also reported that at least one of Bachmann’s staffers had already been hired by Rick Perry’s campaign.

By Sunday it was clear that Bachmann had been taken out of the loop on developments within her own campaign.

On Fox News Sunday, Bachmann conceded that two of her staffers, communications director Jeff Chidester and field staffer Caroline Gilger, had resigned.

“We just didn’t know yesterday because they never talked to us; they just went to the press,” she said. “It would have been nice of them to talk to us. We understand that they want to campaign and work more; it’s just that we are spending our time and efforts in Iowa. We’re basically camping out in Iowa until the caucuses.”

Bachmann told Roll Call that her campaign would be replacing the staff that had left New Hampshire.

“We’re replacing the staff that we have in New Hampshire,” Bachmann said.
