Rep. Bachmann Refuses to fully Fill Out 2010 Census


 Rep. Bachmann Refuses to Fill Out 2010 Census

Rep. Michele Bachmann has expressed concern about the activist group ACORN's involvement in the 2010 Census and vows that she and her family will not fully fill out the 2010 Census forms.

"I know for my family the only question we will be answering is how many people are in our home," the Minnesota Republican told the Washington Times.

"We won't be answering any information beyond that because the Constitution doesn't require any information beyond that."

Shelley Lowe, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Census Bureau, said Bachmann is "misreading" the law. She told the Times that anyone over the age of 18 who refuses to answer "any of the questions" on the census can be fined up to $5,000.

Rep. Bachmann said she is disturbed about the involvement of ACORN in next year's census.

"They will be in charge of going door to door and collecting data from the American public," she said. "This is very concerning."

ACORN staffers have been indicted in several states on charges of voter registration fraud. But the group has applied to help recruit workers to conduct the census.

  1. You go Michelle Bachmann!!!I wouldn't answer these questions either. ACORN has proven that they are not a trustworthy organization. They need to be stopped from helping out in the 2010 census. ACORN likes to raise people up from the dead, and make believe they are living to bring more votes for Democrats so that they can win elections. ACORN is a corrupt organization, right to the core. Obama has proven that he is in bed with corruption once again.


Please be patient on comment approval. Too many places to be. Thanks for your thoughts.
