Aide to Rep. Michele Bachmann charged with theft
Tuesday - 7/16/2013, 11:28am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A top aide to congresswoman Michele Bachmann has been arrested and charged with thefts that took place in a House office building.
A spokesman for the U.S. Capitol Police says 37-year-old Javier Sanchez of Virginia was arrested last Thursday.
Sanchez was a senior legislative assistant to Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican. Her office is in the Rayburn office building, where police say the thefts took place.
Sanchez has been charged with theft of money or goods less than $1,000 in value.
Bachmann spokesman Dan Kotman says Sanchez was no longer with the office as of Friday.
A favorite of the tea party movement, Bachmann ran unsuccessfully for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012. She recently announced she will not be seeking another term in the House.
