Michele Bachmann's goons spend a lot of time threatening and physically harassing reporters, and the campaign is not particularly apologetic about it, Politico reports today. Bachmann has some aggro old guy -- they claim he's a former Secret Service agent but considering that this is the Bachmann campaign he is just as likely to be a former ice cream truck driver or used sporting goods salesman or just some guy they found on Craigslist claiming to be a Secret Service agent -- who treats the candidate like she's the president in a war zone instead of a marginal celebrity congressperson wandering around Iowa, America's most harmless state. There are also two identical blonde "advance" women who pushed poor Don Lemon into a golf cart.
Mr. Special Agent Grabby also threatened to break a reporter's arm. The reporter is both Norwegian and conservative, making him the least likely threat to Michele Bachmann alive.
"Flaten, who said he had forgotten his press credential, said he was trying to photograph Bachmann while she talked to Fox and CNN correspondents in Ames on Sunday morning, as well as interviewing her campaign manager Ed Rollins. Flaten said he had met Bachmann earlier — she’s of Norwegian descent and of some interest to the Norwegian media — and had a friendly exchange."
