U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann will serve on the House Intelligence Committee, Speaker-designate John Boehner announced today.
Democrats may have plenty of punchlines for that, but Bachmann said in a statement:
“I want to thank Speaker-designate Boehner for extending to me the opportunity to serve on the House Intelligence Committee. It was a leading desire of mine to serve on this panel because of the key role it plays in keeping our nation safe.
“As a mother of five children and 23 foster children, I have a deep appreciation for that portion of our Oath of Office in which members of Congress vow to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’ That enduring sense of responsibility will help guide me as I serve on this vital committee.”
