Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is not backing down from her campaign against the Census.
A group of GOP Congressmen came out against Bachmann a month ago for her criticism of the Census, but it’s not stopping her. In a new interview with Accuracy in Media, she reiterated her vow to not fill out anything on the form except how many people are in her household:
Note how Bachmann is careful to say she is not encouraging other people to not fill out the Census — she’s simply stating what she and her family will be doing, and what is consistent with their own consciences.
There is an obvious objection to this disclaimer, of course: Monkey see, monkey do. However, Bachmann does not believe in evolution.
