From factcheck.com........Michelle Bachmann lies..........

Oh my God I can't believe it. Bachmann tries to raise money by lying about who and why her district was redistricted. She says liberal judges did it to punish her for standing up to the President. Onlly 2 of the judges were Democrats (doesn't necessarily make them liberals) and her district is even more repug than it was before.

She campaigned for the presidency while holding DUAL citizenship. I don't recall any part of the Constitution that allows for this. But then I doubt very much that Bachmann has ever read the Constitution.
