Editor’s Note: Sen. Ron Latz (DFL-District 46) released the following statement in response to that the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the highest levels of government. The 6th District congresswoman has targeted individuals ranging from a Hillary Clinton aide to U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison. The accusations have not been proven and Bachmann has not substantiated her claims.
Rep. Bachmann’s latest slanderous accusations are an embarrassment to our state and our country. Her statements have no place in the American political dialogue and amount to a paranoid witch-hunt, reeking of religious intolerance. She continues to reveal herself as an irresponsible political extremist. Minnesotans deserve better.
She has so far failed to provide even one shred of evidence supporting her allegations. So, I join many other public officials and citizens from all political backgrounds in calling upon Rep. Bachmann to stop her shameless character assault and publicly clear the names of any individuals she has targeted. I further call upon the state Republican party to renounce her statements.
