Michele Bachmann and her hubby, Marcus Bachmann, accept money from both the federal and state government for a farm subsidy (for a defunct family farm that they don’t run) and Marcus Bachmann’s private business, a counseling center. From the LA Times report:
[T]he Minnesota Republican and her family have benefited personally from government aid, an examination of her record and finances shows. A counseling clinic run by her husband has received nearly $30,000 from the state of Minnesota in the last five years, money that in part came from the federal government. A family farm in Wisconsin, in which the congresswoman is a partner, received nearly $260,000 in federal farm subsidies.
And she has sought to keep federal money flowing to her constituents. After publicly criticizing the Obama administration's stimulus program, Bachmann requested stimulus funds to support projects in her district. Although she has been a fierce critic of earmarks — calling them "part of the root problem with Washington's spending addiction" — the congresswoman nonetheless argued recently that transportation projects should not be considered congressional pork.
Gotta love the way Republicans are the biggest hypocrites on the planet.
