WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Amidst the continuing drama centered around raising the national debt limit, a new story is emerging about Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) sending out inappropriate images with her own Twitter account. Considering that former Rep. Anthony Wiener (D-NY) was forced to resign in disgrace in June of 2011 due to his own Twitter scandal, it's likely that these revelations could at least derail her ambitions to clinch the Republican nomination for President in 2012.
However, according to Becky Rocknell, Communications Director for Rep. Bachmann, in this case the Twitter account was 'clearly hacked' and the FBI is investigating. "These images bear no likeness whatsoever to the Congresswoman," says Rocknell, "and are simply meant to degrade the fine work she does on behalf of the country."
The images in question, which focus on a woman in a business suit sitting inappropriately without underwear as well as a close-up of what Ms. Rocknell claims is in fact a "healthy serving of roast beef" and not the Congresswoman's private parts, have been making the rounds on Capitol Hill as well as on multiple sites on the Internet.
Rep. Bachmann's husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, refused to confirm or deny whether or not the photos -- and especially the one possibly masquerading as roast beef -- were those of his wife. "Honestly, between her political career, raising our many kids and running our Christian-based clinic, I haven't been that far south since the 1980s," Mr. Bachmann retorted when questioned after a campaign rally. "And frankly, it's really nobody's business anyway. You try having five kids and see what your vajayjay looks like."
