Bachmann's assistant in writing the book will reportedly be none other than John Fund, who has made a name for himself as one of the premier Republican pushers of erroneous charges of Democratic voter fraud.
Also note that Bachmann hails from Minnesota, which was the scene to a very close Senate race and subsequent eight months of a recount and extensive litigation -- with Democrat Al Franken ultimately defeating Republican Norm Coleman by a margin of 312 votes out of nearly 2.9 million. That race continues to be a sore point among Republicans, who at the time latched onto any small piece of reasonable doubt or uncertainty, magnifying it into a smoking gun (regardless of any other hints of doubt that might run the other way). Thus, it's a good question as to whether this topic will come up in the book.
