Freebie: Michele Bachmann charges taxpayers $3,400 for tea party speech 

WHO: Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Todd Akin, R-Mo., Steve King, R-Iowa, and Tom Price, R-Ga.

WHAT: The lawmakers listed a tea party rally as a news conference and spent $3,400 apiece in taxpayer funds from their office accounts to rent a sound system for the event.

WHY IT’S OUTRAGEOUS: Aren’t tea party activists — especially those such as Bachmann who are running for president — supposed to be against wasting taxpayer money?
