The once lauded Tea Party Darling, Michele Bachman is now a citizen of Switzerland in addition to being a citizen of the United States.
She was granted citizenship on March 19th of this year.
Bachman is now eligible to run for political office in Switzerland...while still holding office in Congress.
How's that for conflict of interest?
The news was reported matter of factly by Politico yesterday, but the DC Conservative Examiner is shining light on the main issue.
How she thinks that she can sit in the US Congress of the United States after swearing allegiance to the country of Switzerland is beyond my comprehension.
Remember that Oath you took Ms. Bachman when you were sworn into office? It goes like this:
All Americans should have a problem with any member of Congress, especially one on the House Intelligence Committee running out and becoming a citizen of another country.
I think your recent actions make you a traitor to this country. Yes, a TRAITOR. But that's just the icing on the cake. Let's not forget your other offenses against the Constitution and the people you say you represent.
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
You voted in favor of the following:
Step down now, resign, and GTFO because we will remember you and your traitorous cohorts when house cleaning time arrives.
