I read that Michele Bachmann, Rep from Minnesota, is not going to complete the full census because of her fear of ACORN.
Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann says she’s so worried that information from next year’s national census will be abused that she will refuse to fill out anything more than the number of people in her household.
In an interview Wednesday morning with The Washington Times “America’s Morning News,” Mrs. Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, said the questions have become “very intricate, very personal” and she also fears ACORN, the community organizing group that came under fire for its voter registration efforts last year, will be part of the Census Bureau’s door-to-door information collection efforts.
“I know for my family the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home,” she said. “We won’t be answering any information beyond that, because the Constitution doesn’t require any information beyond that.”
The article points out that Bachmann is proud that she has become something of a lightning rod for her “conservative views”. It’s not her conservative views; it’s that she’s apparently a raving and unapologetic lunatic who hasn’t met an insane conspiracy she doesn’t believe. I’ve met some of the folks who work for ACORN and while they are very dedicated, I have yet to meet one with the kind of power Bachmann seems to think they have. Michele Bachmann apparently missed the onramp to reality in the great freeway of life.
