She’d be less embarrassing if she flew to Argentina and had an affair!

THE HUFFINGTON POST:

Three Republican congressman have publicly chastised fellow Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) for declaring that she would not fill our her census form.

“Boycotting the constitutionally mandated Census is illogical, illegal and not in the best interest of our country,” said Reps. Patrick McHenry (N.C.), Lynn Westmoreland (Ga.) and John Mica (Fla.), members of the Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Information Policy, Census, and National Archives in a statement Wednesday.

From ROLL CALL:

“[A] boycott opens the door for partisans to statistically adjust Census results,” the trio’s statement said. “The partisan manipulation of census data would irreparably transform the Census from being the baseline of our entire statistical system into a tool used to wield political power in Washington.”

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah), the only other Republican member of the subcommittee, did not sign on to Wednesday’s statement.

Sources say the GOP Members approached Bachmann privately over the past few weeks and asked her to stop the boycott. They decided to go public because Bachmann appeared unfazed by their request, according to a GOP aide.

Bachmann has said she would not fill out her 2010 Census form, a violation of federal law, because of the involvement of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. The nonprofit came under fire during the 2008 elections over allegations of voter fraud; Republicans have asked President Barack Obama to prohibit ACORN from helping gather 2010 Census data.

  1. sorry so late, kids. came home this afternoon to find my internets connection was once again not working. friggin’ comcast sucks! 😡

  2. http://draftbachmann.com/

    H/T to kos himself for finding this site.

  3. These are the kind of empty gestures assholes like Bachman use to plug up the gaping holes in their statesmanship and/or credibility. What’s even funnier though is that you know this stupid ass had no idea it would be against the law to refuse the census report. Somebody told her and she went Huh or was, as the copy above says, “unfazed.” I think if Bachman were to write her life story it could be titled “Unfazed.”

    • rastamick,
      she’s an attorney and she has no idea what the law says. 🙄 she’s like a singer who is told she has a really crappy voice and then sings louder thinking she’ll sound better.

  4. she’s a legend in her own mind

  5. If she flies to Brazil instead of Argentina I won’t mind having an affair with her!

  6. Well, I should not be commenting on other countries political issues… this is so unethical diplomacy… my bad…

    Is she single?

    • Friend of the court

      • fotc,
        this is from wiki: 😯

        She met her future husband, Marcus Bachmann, at Winona; they began dating in 1976 while working together on Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign. The couple married in 1978 and moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Bachmann’s husband, Marcus Bachmann, operates a Christian counseling center in the St. Croix valley area. He has a master’s degree in counseling from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the Union Institute & University in Cincinnati.
