Bachmann's former Iowa field coordinator Peter Waldron now tells BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski that Bachmann's famous debate coach, Brett O'Donnell, had a "Rasputin-like" relationship with the congresswoman. Waldron said O'Donnell's power was so great that he forbid Bachmann from sleeping in the same bed as her husband while on the campaign trail.

Quote
"Once she asked me to ride on the bus with her to pray. Brett's objection was so intense that for the good of the order, I followed the bus in my personal vehicle... On one occasion, she whispered to me, 'Peter, don't get off the bus no matter who tells you to get off.' Another time, her personal assistant told me, 'Peter, Michele does not want to you leave. Stay on the bus. Please pray for us.'"

I'm sure her husband wept long and bitterly at the prospect.
