"He has a long record of being associated with [the Council on American–Islamic Relations] and with the Muslim Brotherhood," Bachmann said during an interview on Glenn Beck's radio show.I guess when you've agreed to be on Glenn Beck's gloomy, decaying radio show, you're expected to show up with a gift basket of conspiracy theories. Accusing anyone you don't like of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood seems to be the one currently in style.
Ellison confirmed to The Huffington Post that Bachmann's accusations were completely false. "I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood," he said with a laugh.
In the meantime, the government agencies involved have apparently politely declined Bachmann's request to investigate the super-scary Muslim-looking person who was already vetted when they took the job. This will no doubt further enrage the now-completely-off-her-rocker Bachmann, who will I hope respond by next pointing out that Chick-Fil-A sounds kinda foreign too and why is nobody investigating that.
