Michele Bachmann PAC is back

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann has revived her MichelePAC to raise money, even though she has no plans seek a 5th term in Congress

Bachmann is emailing fundraising requests with a mission to maintain a Republican majority in the House and overtake Democrats in the Senate.

"Now that the ethics investigation seems to have really gone nowhere, she might now feel like she's capable of raising money and that it won't be seen as tainted and that people will be excited to see her again," Washington University- Louis political science professor Steven Smith told Minnesota Public Radio News.

The MichelePAC raised about $250,000 in 2013, with about 1/3 of the money spent on legal bills. Bachmann ended 2013 with more than $1.7 million in her personal campaign fund, which she can hold for any future campaigns.

MichelePAC -- "Many Individual Conservatives Helping Elect Leaders Everywhere" – was started in 2010 to raise money for conservative candidates across the country.

    By some estimates, pornography is now a $10-billion industry in America -- bigger than the NFL, NBA and MLB, but the profits sometimes come at a tragic cost.
