    Bachmann skipped family reunion she cited

    On her victory lap of Iowa yesterday, Straw Poll winner Rep. Michele Bachmann paid repeated tribute to her local roots, and repeatedly mentioned her family reunion that day, citing it as an excuse for her late arrival at a local party event in Waterloo.


    But Bachmann's mother and two cousins told POLITICO's Emily Schultheis that Bachmann didn't attend the reunion, though her husband and children did. Her spokeswoman, Alice Stewart, didn't respond to two emails asking for an explanation of the disparity.


    Bachmann told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that same morning that she was looking forward to the reunion.

    “We’re having a big family reunion today in northeastern Iowa so I’ll get to go and see all my relatives,” she said.


    That evening, she answered a reporter's question about why she'd turned up late to the Black Hawk County Republican Party dinner in Waterloo.
    It was, she said, "a busy day.


    “We had a big family reunion just north of Waterloo," she said. She also said she'd visited a local "shut-in."

    Politico seems to have shut down that article that Synth provided. Now I'm wondering if it's true, or was just a bogus article.

    You guys are picking up some steam... It won't be long and you'll be whipping Bachmann in the press just like they did Palin. Nice to know some things never change. I'm beginning to think that Republican women scare you.

    Indeed.

    *Note: I don't mean to imply that Bush and Bachmann were having extra-marital relations. Just that she was a complete toady for the Bush Administration when they were in office.
