Barb Heki, a former Iowa campaign worker for U.S. Rep Michele Bachmann’s presidential bid has filed suit in Polk county district court. The papers were filed Monday. Also named in the suit is Kent Sorenson, Bachmann’s Iowa campaign chairman.

Heki, of Johnston, coordinated home school supporters. She was removed from state and national home school advocacy boards after an email went out to the Iowa Network of Christian Homeschoolers. Heki alleges the email list was swiped from her computer by Sorenson, whom she alleges, sent an email to reach homeschoolers before the primary. Heki says that lead to her dismissal from the advocacy boards.

As of now, damages have yet to be described.

Rep Bachmann withdrew from the race January 4th.

Bachmann and Sorenson have yet to comment on the lawsuit.
