The Jims then talk about Bachmann's record, such as when she called the BP escrow fund to compensate victims "extortion," and how she's taken campaign contributions from Wall Street. "And that's why real Jims support Tarryl Clark."

We asked Clark campaign communications director Carrie Lucking whether they had any evidence that Jim the Election Guy's is not actually named Jim. Lucking did not appear to immediately have any evidence either way, but instead referred us to the Bachmann campaign: "The Bachmann campaign knows who 'Jim the Election Guy' is if you want to know."

The Bachmann campaign was not immediately available for comment as to what Jim the Election Guy's full name might be.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
