    Bachmann could face lawsuit for ‘propagating complete and utter lies’

    A religious freedom advocate told U.S. News he is considering suing Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) over allegedly slanderous comments she made in a fundraising pitch.
    “We are caucusing with our legal counsel to consider the most expeditious course of action we can take in a federal court to stop these bald-faced lies,” Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) said. “About 96 percent of our members [at MRFF] are Protestant or Roman Catholic… of our unpaid volunteers, at least well over 80 percent are Christian… I say [to Bachmann]: Tell it to the judge.”

    Earlier this month conservative bloggers falsely claimed that Weinstein was behind a plan to court-martial Christians in the military who shared their faith. The conspiracy was quickly debunked by the Pentagon itself, which noted that proselytizing — a form of religious harassment — has long been prohibited, but service members are free to evangelize and speak about their faith.

    But as of Wednesday Bachmann’s website still stated that Weinstein’s conspiracy with the Pentagon could “prevent our military from practicing their own faith.” She described Weinstein as a “left-wing, anti-Christian activists” and a “radical.” She also claimed that Weinstein had compared “sharing the gospel to ‘spiritual rape’ and ‘treason,’” when he actually described misogyny, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism as “spiritual rape” and “treason.”
    Weinstein accused Bachmann of “propagating complete and utter lies.”

    I dunno......she seems to thrive on attention...negative or positive.
    I thought her near-death re-election in 2012 might calm her down.
    Apparently, I was wrong.

    Bachmann is totally reckless and constantly make defamatory statements. Like all tea baggers, she has no sense of decency or truth. I think a big fat lawsuit thrown her way would be a perfect ending to her freakazoid career.

    I agree. if you are ever going to reign in the absurd lies that people like bachman make over and over again there needs to be consequences for their actions when they knowingly misrepresent the truth to confuse the issue. I have little faith it will go anywhere and will probably end up getting squashed by the courts sending a message to bachman and the radical right that they can just make up whatever outlandish lie they want to and no one will hold them accountable for knowingly deceiving the people who trust them, but maybe i am wrong. It is worth a try, and if it works I say hammer the hell out of all of them when they make their wild and false accusations.

    How many of you really want a president set so that when a politician spouts out a half baked statement against an organization they then are sued for libel? Given that Democrats Pols do so also?

    I do.
    Maybe such a precedent will encourage pols on both sides to temper their--often idiotic, unsupported, inflammatory --remarks.
