Pro-Israel Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann is fighting for her
political life after being “gerrymandered” for what she
says “standing up to President Obama.”
She has also has angered her conservative supporters by taking out
dual citizenship in Switzerland – and then withdrawing it after an
In a letter to supporters, Rep. Bachmann, whose campaign for the
Republican presidential nomination took off like a rocket and then
crash-landed, she said that re-drawing of districts in Minnesota has
left her home outside of the area she represents.
“In retaliation for repeatedly standing up to President Obama on the
national stage, liberal judges have redrawn the lines of my Minnesota
Congressional District to try and wipe me off of the political map
once and for,” she wrote in a appeal for money.
Rep. Bachmann also stated that defeating President Barack Obama
will “restore honor to America´s name across the globe.” However, the
Tea Party caucus chairwoman suffered an angry tirade from
conservatives for using her husband’s Swiss origin to take out dual
citizenship in March.
She withdrew her citizenship last week to “make it perfectly clear”
that she’s a “proud American citizen. She was labeled a “traitor” on
some conservative blogs, Politico reported.
Technically, she could have run for office in Switzerland after
taking out citizenship. One of her former staffers told
Politico, “She didn’t think there was anything wrong with holding or
applying for Swiss citizenship while serving as a member of the U.S.
Congress…. But one might think she’d be better served to focus first
on her constituents in Minnesota and then on her fellow citizens in
Switzerland.” (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/15/12)
