Bachmann asks for end to Swiss citizenship

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/onpolitics/post/2012/05/michele-bachmann-swiss-citizenship-withdrawn/1#.T6wdOTJhC-Y

Rep. Michele Bachmann says she's withdrawing from dual citizenship with Switzerland.

"I took this action because I want to make it perfectly clear: I was born in America and I am a proud American citizen," the former GOP presidential candidate said in a statement. "I am, and always have been, 100% committed to our United States Constitution and the United States of America."

The Minnesota congresswoman said she sent her request to the Swiss consulate. Her statement follows one from Wednesday, in which she declared her dual citizenship to be a "non-story."

Bachmann has dual citizenship because her husband, Marcus, is of Swiss descent and is a citizen of both the United States and Switzerland. She says the status was conferred to her automatically under Swiss law when she and her husband married in 1978.
