Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) just finished up a conference call with conservative bloggers in preparation for tomorrow’s Tea Party Patriot anti-health care reform rally she’s hosting at the Capitol. TPMDC joined the call and asked Bachmann about the big story coming out of her office today: the resignation of her chief of staff, which some Republicans speculated was due to media stunts like the one she’s hosting tomorrow.
Bachmann refused to answer questions about the resignation, saying tersely, “out of respect for privacy, I don’t comment on personnel matters.”
Pressed on whether her staff has been upheaval over the Bachmann-led Tea Party Rally tomorrow, Bachmann again refused to respond. “I’ve already given my answer,” she said.
