Michelle Bachman inserts foot in her mouth - Take 2

After that train wreck of an interview with Chris Matthews last year we get this gem:

On the Chris Baker Show - KTLK - Feb 12, 2009

"ACORN is "under federal indictment for voter fraud," but the stimulus bill nevertheless gives ACORN "$5 billion."

Actually its only former temporary employees who were charged with voter fraud (of which ACORN was the victim) Also ACORN is not even named in the stimulus bill. (PDF link) ACORN are only eligible for grants in poverty and housing.

"The Census Bureau will report directly to the White House. Hey, for a community organizer-in-chief, that is the mother lode of all data, so that he can redraw all of the redistricting lines, so that democrats can control by a wide majority, every congressional seat across the country."

  1. Redistricting was done in Texas by Tom Delay (R)
  2. States have the right to redraw redistricting not anyone else.
  3. The Census data is public
  4. Democrats already control congress.

She falls for Betsy McCaughey's deception about Health care.

"So now we'll have a national rationing board, and your doctor will no longer be able to make your health-care decisions with you. Now a rationing board will be making those decisions."
