Unfortunately, the story doesn't hold water, as researcher Chris Rodda ably points out at OpEdNews.Why is this woman so popular? Do the Obama-haters fear a second term so badly that they've become even blinder than usual?
So Rodda, who has a background in genealogical research, decided to do a little digging. Without too much trouble, she found that Bachmann is actually a fourth-generation American, not seventh, as she claimed. And that's just the start.
Bachmann's immigrant ancestors didn't make a pilgrimage straight to the promised land of Iowa. From Quebec, they went to Wisconsin. That's where the 1860 census found them. From there, they moved to the Dakota Territory.
