Bachmann’s Son Joins Government Re-Education Camp

August 12, 2009 5:20 a.m.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) may now have additional reason to fear the Obama Administration, the Star Tribune reports: Her son Harrison Bachmann has now joined Teach For America — part of the dreaded AmeriCorps!

You might recall that Bachmann said four months ago of Americorps funding that it constituted “re-education camps” run by the Democrats — and that she worried about her own children being signed up:

And the real concern is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go and work in some of these politically correct forums. It’s very concerning. It appears that there’s a philosophical agenda behind all of this, and especially if young people are mandated to go into this. As a parent, I would have a very, very difficult time seeing my children do this. Again, a huge power-grab, at a cost of billions of dollars.

This was first sniffed out three weeks ago by our friends at Dump Bachmann, and now confirmed by the Strib.

How could it get any worse? Will one of her other children completely fill out the family’s Census form?
