Even though she had long called for investigations of the organization’s activities, Rep. Michele Bachmann expressed surprise after watching an undercover video that shows a couple portraying a pimp and prostitute receiving tax advice from an ACORN official on how to shelter money from the government.
She talked about the ACORN controversy in an interview with Human Events, which bills itself as the Headquarters of the Conservtive Underground.
Commenting on the recent “You lie” outburst by Rep. Joe Wilson, Bachmann said he is bearing the situation very well and has made all the proper steps in apologizing. She said she believes some Democrats just want to rub Wilson’s nose in it and won’t let well enough alone to move forward on true health care reform.
Bachmann also says in the interview below that Wilson was telling the truth when it comes to funding health care for illegal aliens. “To have the President of the United States make assertions that are factually not true is really the issue at hand.”
