A clinic that was accused of pushing bogus "pray away the gay" therapy — and is owned by former Rep. Michele Bachmann's husband — was cited by Minnesota health inspectors for failing to properly keep patient records. DHS has no reason to believe that the clinic will not comply. It was cited for the same kind of violations in and , the papers state. Bachmann, who represented the Twin Cities suburbs from to , is a Christian conservative who became well known for her opposition to same-sex marriage and her frequent appearances on cable TV news programs. In , a gay rights group called Truth Wins Out sent an activist named John Becker undercover into the Lake Elmo clinic and recorded a therapist quoting Bible verses and assuring him that homosexuality could be reversed.
Comedians are obviously starting to take note of Michele Bachmann's husband Dr. Marcus Bachmann and his controversial gay repression therapy clinic. As Jon Stewart proved on Wednesday night's "Daily Show," it's just too easy to associate the doctor's desire to "pray the gay away" with jokes about him having a repressed sexuality. So easy, in fact, that Jerry Seinfeld had to come on the show and do a little therapy of his own to help Stewart repress his comedic desires.
Bachmann cut off an interview last week as she was being asked a question about gay marriage and emphasized that she is focused on rebuilding the economy and repealing federal health care reform. This is a trend. As I started getting deeper into a conversation with her about Schaeffer, she abruptly ended the interview.
