Michele Bachmann Unhappy Jan Brewer Vetoed Arizona's Anti-Gay Bill

Bachmann

In an interview with Yahoo's The Fine Print, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) expressed disappointment that Jan Brewer vetoed SB 1062, the anti-gay 'religious freedom' bill.

Said Bachmann:  “I believe that tolerance is a two-way street, and we need to respect everyone's rights, including the rights of people who have sincerely held religious beliefs,...Religious liberties and the protection of our religious liberties is right...Right now, there's a terrible intolerance afoot in the United States, and it's against people who hold sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Michele Bachmann: 'God, I’m A Loser'

That's what a new book titled Double Down claims the Republican Congresswoman said to herself after she quit her failed presidential bid in 2012.

The Huffington Post has published an excerpt from the book: 00000403049208

Sitting in her campaign bus, in the same seat where she cried with joy in August, she now sobbed over her drubbing. “God, I’m a loser,” Bachmann said. “God, I turn people off.” With two debates ahead in New Hampshire, some of her advisers thought she should consider staying in the race. Bachmann wanted no part of it. Let’s draft a withdrawal speech for tomorrow, she said.

Double Down focuses on the 2012 presidential campaign and will apparently give a fair amount of attention to Bachmann and her campaign. The book will be released on Tuesday.

If you want to revisit that speech, which took place right after the Iowa caucuses, watch it, AFTER THE JUMP.

Michele Bachmann: Obama Needs 'a Spanking' - VIDEO

Bachmann

In a video for WingNut Daily, Michele Bachmann sends up a right-wing warning flare about Obama and immigration reform:

"He has a perpetual magic wand and nobody’s given him a spanking yet and taken it out of his hand...That’s what Congress needs to do, give the president a major wake-up call. And the way we spank the president, we do it through the checkbook. We have the power of the purse. The most powerful body in Washington D.C. is the United States House of Representatives, of which I'm honored to be a part.”

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

In other Bachmann, one of her top aides, Javier Sanchez, was arrested by U.S. Capitol Police for theft last Thursday, the AP reports:

Sanchez is legislative director for Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican. Her office is in the Rayburn office building, where police say the thefts took place. Sanchez has been charged with theft of money or goods less than $1,000 in value.

Sanchez was fired Monday evening, according to NBC.

Capitol Police placed a hidden camera in Room 2417 April 4 and placed two envelopes, one with $80 marked "Petty Cash" on one desk, and another marked "Birthday Money" with $120 on another desk. The money from both envelopes was reported missing June 25.

Surveillance video captured a man entering the office just after 6:30 p.m. June 14. The video shows the man opening the chief of staff's drawer, removing an envelope, counting money and taking the cash and envelope with him, the charging documents state.

July 9, Sanchez' boss identified the man in the surveillance video as Sanchez. The two have known each other since January 2013, according to the affidavit.

Hate group Family Research Council is planning a dinner and reception to announce two new 'ex-gay' rights organizations and a line-up of familiar anti-gay wingnuts has been invited to speak, the HuffPost reports:

The event is scheduled for the end of July, just weeks after the Supreme Court's landmark rulings in favor of gay rights. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has been extended an invitation as an honorable attendee.

The Family Research Council's legislative affiliate, FRC Action, will officially launch two new ex-gay rights organizations, Voice of the Voiceless and Equality and Justice For All, during the dinner in Washington, D.C., on July 31.

"Come celebrate the lives of former homosexuals and hear about their unique stories and achievements!" reads the invitation.

In addition to Bachman, the Heritage Foundation's Jim DeMint, the Liberty Counsel's Matthew Staver and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) -- who on Friday introduced a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage -- have all been invited to speak.
