Michele Bachmann applied for Swiss citizenship

May 10, 2012

It seems that last winter, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, her husband, Marcus, and their children applied to become citizens of Switzerland, an option that is open to them under Swiss law because the parents of Marcus Bachmann had both been Swiss citizens. (The Bachmann family kept their American citizenship.)

I can only imagine the freakout on the right if a prominent Democratic legislator — a one-time candidate for president with a significant following — decided that American citizenship wasn’t good enough and had pledged dual loyalties to a European country that allows same-sex marriage and offers universal health care with compulsory health insurance.
