Michele Bachmann's Campaign Biography page makes the claim:
"After earning her law degree, she went on to the College of William and Mary to get an LLM in Tax Law"
Um ... there are TWO huge problems with that lie.
- William and Mary does NOT now and never has offered an LL.M Degree in Tax Law.
- The ONLY LL.M Program that William and Mary offer is for "Foreign Students" ... Non U.S. Lawyers ... William & Mary's ONLY LL.M program is titled: "LL.M in American Law." not Tax Law.
William & Mary only offers a FEW tax law classes and they do not offer a Degree in Tax Law.
So, either Michele Bachmann is NOT an American Citizen and went to William & Mary and got an LL.M because she was Foreign Student.
Or ... she is just a big fat liar.
Michele Bachmann has got to be one of the most ignorant people I have ever heard speak. She is also one of the biggest liars I have ever heard speak.
Here ignorance on taxes and how they work has always astonished me. Then I heard one of her staffers say "Michele Bachmann has a degree in Tax Law." My first thought, "NO EFFING WAY!"
I know people who really do have their LL.M in Tax Law. I also know very few Law Schools in America even offer that Degree - which means it is very hard to get into any Tax Law program.
After listening to the utter stupidity that comes out of Bachmann's mouth I knew there was no way in hell she
a) would have been accepted into a Tax Law Program and
b) never in a million years would have been able to graduate with a Tax Law Degree.
Last night on Anderson Cooper 360 he highlighted in his "Keep Em Honest" segment the lies and false comments Michele Bachmann told an audience regarding the history and founding of this country.
Not only does Bachmann lies about and FLUNKS American History - Michele Bachmann even lies about and FLUNKS her own history.
Here is William & Mary's Law School phone number:
If you want, call them and find out ...
By the way: For those readers unfamiliar with what an LL.M is, and LL.M is a "Masters of Law" in a field of Law and is obtained only after the JD is obtained.
Finally, very few law schools in the USA even offer an LL.M in Tax Law.
