Reality Check: Yep, Michele Bachmann Lied.

Pat Kessler’s Reality Check took a look at Michele Bachmann’s "no earmarks" remark… and wouldn’t you know it he found the same thing that we did:


"I took a pledge in my own district," Bachmann told Fox Business News on March 11. "I have not taken earmarks in the last three years that I’ve been in congress, because the system is so corrupt."

According to the Washington watchdog group Legistorm, in 2008, Bachmann requested seven earmarks by herself or with others totaling $3,767,600.  

Those facts are such pesky things. Head over and read the whole thing here.
