Michele Bachmann Used Her Ex-Gay Therapist Husband To Gain Swiss Citizenship

Well, don’tcha know? Michele Bachmann piggybacked on her bitchy ex-gay therapist husband Marcus Bachmann, who is a Swiss citizen because his parents were born there before moving to Wisconsin, and got herself some good ol’ Swiss citizenship.

When told she could technically run for office in Switzerland now, the crowd around her laughs. She takes the joke well, even though it’s on her, saying: “Well, as you can see, there’s a lot of competition behind me that I would have to run against.”

She doesn’t usually have much of anything behind her, right Marcus? Har har har.

“It’d be very stiff,” she continued, “because they’re very good.” Too easy.

Anywho, who’s the political cutie in the upper left corner (see below)? We vote for him.

      Is that her therapist husband who’s also “ex-gay”, her husband who does “ex-gay” “therapy”, or both?

      Let’s hope she runs for office in Switzerland. It says on my us passport that if I hold an office in a foreign land I loose my citizenship. What a blessing it would be if she lost her citizenship and couldn’t hold an elected office in the united states ever again!

      What a stupid be-yotch!!! She bought into all of that birther crap and intimated that President Obama was not qualified to be president because he was not a “natural born” citizen of this country. When his birth certificate was released, the birthers changed their tune and redefined natural born citizen as one who has allegiance ONLY to the United States. By actively seeking dual citizenship, she is pissing off a lot of far right people in her party. I hope her Democratic opponent makes this a big issue in her re-election campaign.

      So she attacks and attacks govt. services and medical insurance supported by the govt. and then gets citizenship in a country with full universal health care aND one known as a haven for hiding money for tax purposes, especially for Duel citizens. Her husband has already been investigated for shady billing of the U.S. govt.

      I really doubt it…Switzerland has very stringent citizenship laws and requires being a permanent resident and actually living there for at least ten years, plus a language test…I also doubt that she can speak French, German, Italian or any other language

      Queerty…cjeck your facts

      Frank as a Swiss dual national myself I can tell you that foreign born spouses can apply for facilitated nautralisation whilst resident outside of Switzerland provided that they have been married to a Swiss national for a minimum of 6 years and maintain ‘family connections’ within Switzerland. The language and residency requirements are dropped for this form of naturalisation.

      The faster route requires foreign born spouses to live in Switzerland for a period of 3 years within the last 5 years, have been married to a Swiss national for a minimum of 3 years, and be fluent in one of the official langauges of the Swiss canton that the Swiss spouse is registered in (either French, Swiss German, Italian or Romansch).

      @Fodolodo: An ex-gay Marcus run meeting goes as follows.

      Hello boys. Today I’m going to show you how not to be gay and what gay things you shouldn’t do.

      If I can have a volunteer?! Oh, you’ll do.. you look like rough trade.

      Since this is a demonstration, I’ll be showing you exactly what not to do in your new ex-gay lifestyle.

      Don’t ever let a man put his penis in your mouth like this (nom nom nom).

      Don’t ever let a man stick his penis in your anus like this (oh sweet jesus halleluyah)

      And most of all, never, ever be such a self-hating fag just like me! Hi, I’m Marcus.
