Michele Bachmann Renounces Swiss Citizenship

Yesterday I posted a piece critical of Michele Bachman for becoming a Swiss citizen.

Today she has done the right thing and renounced her Swiss citizenship according to this story by Politico.

“Today I sent a letter to the Swiss Consulate requesting withdrawal of my dual Swiss citizenship, which was conferred upon me by operation of Swiss law when I married my husband in 1978,” said Bachmann in a statement.

“I took this action because I want to make it perfectly clear: I was born in America and I am a proud American citizen. I am, and always have been, 100 percent committed to our United States Constitution and the United States of America. As the daughter of an Air Force veteran, stepdaughter of an Army veteran and sister of a Navy veteran, I am proud of my allegiance to the greatest nation the world has ever known,” she added.

That's fine and dandy Michele, but you still voted for bills that go directly against the American people.

This doesn't get you off the hook for those votes.
