    Representative Michele Bachmann becomes a Swiss citizen

    Why?

    Representative Michele Bachmann becomes a Swiss citizen

    Minnesota congresswoman and former US presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is now a citizen of Switzerland.

    Mrs Bachmann, 55, is eligible for dual citizenship through her husband, who is of Swiss descent, a spokeswoman said.

    They're getting ready to flee the country if Obama wins.

    It's only good news if she decides to move there.

    Too bad it is dual citizenship. The swiss can have her.

    I have a problem with that, regardless of party. Those of us with reasonably high security clearances can’t hold dual citizenship so why should a Representative be allowed to?

    At the very least she should be removed from the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence if she wants to keep her dual citizenship.
