Bachmann having trouble keeping staffers.

Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), who famously got up close and personal with President Bush at the 2007 State of the Union, is having difficulty retaining staff members in her congressional office. The Hill reports that “ten of the 14 people” she “hired early last year have left” her office. “The casualty list includes two chiefs of staff, a district director, a press secretary, two legislative assistants, a staff assistant, a caseworker, an outreach and grants coordinator and a district scheduler.” A third chief of staff “rescinded his decision to take the position prior” to being officially placed on the payroll.
