Bachmann in the Big Question again

Eric Black has another Bachmann piece at the Big Question.

While I am not outraged at this, I think it merits discussion. Weeks ago, the blogoshpere was shaken over reports of Al Franken supporters at the University of Minnesota using their .edu email in sending out messages of support and campaign updates. Fact of the matter is that faculty blog using university resources, they send out emails. To the best of my knowledge, it was not a concerted effort by the Franken campaign.

We had the "Shock and Awe" from MDE, Residual Forces and other righty bloggers.

The email by Press Secretary Frederickson is more disturbing than the U of M situation. The Bachmann camp sought out individuals to sway public opinion of our Congresswoman, with their .gov account.

Perhaps, if the Congresswoman would focus on the issues that matter most to her constituents, her Press Secretary would not have to fabricate support, or at least pander for it.

Just a thought.

Anyway, check out the discussion at the Big Question, the comments are interesting, in a non-Wonkette sort of way.
