WASHINGTON, D.C. – Minnesota’s 6th District Rep. Michele Bachmann is attempting to turn to her advantage a new website aimed at critiquing the validity of her public statements, according to Minnesota Public Radio.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee recently launched the site Bachmann Watch: Michele Bachmann vs. The Truth.
In turn, Bachman has reached out to supporters. In a letter that MPR quotes in part, the Republican congresswoman calls the site the “latest attempt to discredit every word out of my mouth and to paint anyone who disagrees with the liberal agenda sweeping through Washington as an extremist.”
She says: “If you get a chance, check it out. It’s incredible how fast and loose they are willing to play with the truth. We thought we saw the height of their spin machine last October, but, really, it looks like this is just the beginning.
“The Democrats are gunning for me because I refuse to shrink from a fight. With your help, I can keep fighting for your freedom, for your pocketbook, and for all that the Constitution has secured for the American people for generations.”
