Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) says that questions about her husband’s controversial Christian counseling center, as well as her husband’s controversial views on homosexuality, are not pertinent to her presidential campaign.
Asked about the so-called “reparative therapy” techniques performed at Marcus Bachmann’s clinic, Bachmann told an audience today that her husband was off-limits as far as her run for the White House goes.
“I am extremely proud of my husband, I have tremendous respect for for him,” Bachmann said. “I am running for the presidency of the United States. My husband is not running for the presidency. Neither are my children, neither is our business, neither is our foster children.”
“I am more than happy to stand for questions about running for the presidency of the United States,” she added.
Though Bachmann wouldn’t take any questions on the topic, she said she knew that probably won’t keep the press from digging into her personal life.
“i am running for the presidency of the United States and I have no doubt that every jot and tittle of my life will be fully looked at and inspected prior to November 2012,” she said.
Bachmann addressed a crowd in Washington today at the National Press Club.
