High schooler challenges Bachmann to debate on U.S. Constitution
Advertisements [?]
A high school sophomore from New Jersey is challenging Rep. Michele Bachmann to a debate on civics and the U.S. Constitution. In an open letter to to Bachmann, Amy Myers of Cherry Hill, N.J., said, I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted.
I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics, Myers wrote, according to a report by City Pages Nick Pinto.

Politifact rated Bachmanns statements about the U.S. Constitutions census requirements in 2009 as Pants on Fire false. CNNs Anderson Cooper dinged Bachmann back in January for her revisionist history regarding the U.S. Constitutions racist past.
