Bachmann's jewels

Posted by: Hammer / 11:04 AM

Apparently, most of Minnesota Sen. Michele Bachmann's financial support doesn't come from the people she is supposed to represent:
The biggest supporters of Sen. Michele Bachmann's bid for Minnesota's 6th congressional district seat aren't even residents of the 6th congressional district. Nor do they live in her hometown of Stillwater, or even the state senate district she currently represents. Rather, according to an analysis of Bachmann's 2005 first-quarter campaign contributions by DumpBachmann.com, the largest bloc of financiers bankrolling Bachmann's fledgling campaign live out of state or in wealthy Lake Minnetonka enclaves.
(Found the link via Power Liberal.)

There's nothing terribly wrong with receiving campaign contributions from outside your district. But a candidate's primary support should come from the people she represents. Apparently, there aren't enough vicious homophobes in the 6th Congressional District to support Bachmann's pursuit of higher office.

I can't emphasize enough how stoked I am to vote against this woman. A neighbor of mine is thinking about making "Bachmann in the Bushes" garden signs in honor of her classy behavior earlier this spring at the capital.

That'd be pretty sweet. Maybe you could personalize one of those old lady bending over in bloomers yard decorations.
