Iowa Woman Resolves Lawsuit Against Bachmann
DES MOINES (AP) -- An Iowa woman says she has resolved her lawsuit against U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann that accused the former presidential candidate's campaign of stealing an email list of home school supporters.
A lawyer for Barbara Heki, of Johnston, says the case against the Minnesota congresswoman and her senior Iowa campaign aides was dismissed Friday in Polk County District Court.
Heki had been a longtime board member of the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators and volunteered for Bachmann's 2012 Iowa caucus campaign. Home-school advocates are an influential bloc in the GOP caucuses.
Heki claimed the campaign's Iowa chairman, Sen. Kent Sorenson of Indianola, took her personal computer without permission to access home-school information for the campaign.
Bachmann quit the race the day after finishing sixth in the January 2012 caucuses.
