started this petition to
House Speaker John Boehner,
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
With her recent witch hunt against American Muslims, this time GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has gone too far. So far that a group of respected foreign policy experts are now demanding Bachmann gets the boot from a key Congressional committee. If tens of thousands of us back the plan, Congressional leadership won’t be able to ignore this common sense call.
Bachmann recently accused high level government officials -- including Hillary Clinton's deputy chief-of-staff and even Bachmann’s fellow Congressman from Minnesota -- of being tied to a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to infiltrate American government. Her accusations are crazy, unfounded, and dangerous -- especially coming from a member of the Congressional committee responsible for fact based analysis of intelligence and foreign policy. But with momentum building to sanction Bachmann, even amongst prominent conservatives, a people-powered push can make sure the House Intelligence Committee isn’t a vehicle for promoting anti-Muslim conspiracy theories.
The leadership of the House doesn’t get to choose who the people elect to Congress - but it does get to choose who serves on the House Intelligence Committee. House Speaker Boehner and Minority Leader Pelosi can - and should - replace Bachmann with somebody with real intelligence. Sign the urgent petition and share with everybody you know.
