    Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN), announced yesterday that is now officially a Swiss citizen (as of March 19th), which gives her dual citizenship – US and Switzerland. She is a citizen because her husband is eligible to be a Swiss citizen because his parents' nationality

    Lighthouse Journal: In the News: Rep. Michelle Bachman Dual Citizen and - Taxation Discussion

    This brings up a very interesting point. My father, a long time ago, was denied employment by the CIA and FBI, because my mother, his wife, is a Swiss citizen. Because Switzerland is a neutral country, it is not considered to be an ally of the US. So does Michelle Bachmann lose any security clearances she may have had due to her new citizenship? Yes, she still is a US citizen, but she is also a citizen of a country that is not even our ally.

    Should any of her security clearances be revoked? Remember, she is also on the intelligence committee.

    Good point. She should lose every security clearance she has because her loyalties are now divided. So should Bill Richardson. He holds dual citizenship with mexico.

    Hey, what' the big deal?

    Oh yeah, and getting some decent health care.

    The Swedes have said they will not accept them.

    Can't blame them but damn - wouldn't it have been nice if we could have gotten rid of them?
