Bachmann tells Iowa conservatives Al Franken stole election and gave us ‘Obamacare’

During her speech at the Iowa-based Family Leader on Friday, potential presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann made a bold claim before the gathering of social conservatives: Sen. Al Franken, she said, stole the election against Sen. Norm Coleman, and that election is to blame for the passage of the national healthcare reform law.

Bachmann spoke of taking the Triple Crown in 2012 — Republicans taking the House, Senate and White House — and getting to 60 Republican votes in the Senate. (Public Policy Polling, releasing a new survey Thursday [pdf], questioned that possibility, noting “strong movement back toward the Democrats right now” among the public and adding that “it’s entirely possible Democrats could take control of the House back next year.”)

“What do you get when you get to 60 seats in the Senate? You are filibuster-proof. You can pass anything you want,” she said. “That’s why an election was stolen in Minnesota, and yes, I will tell you, it was stolen.”

She continued, “And Al Franken became the 60th Senator to give Barack Obama a filibuster-proof majority in the United States Senate and that’s how we got ‘Obamacare.’”

She said, “But for that stolen election, we wouldn’t have ‘Obamacare’ today. That’s how important every vote is.”

Bachmann didn’t elaborate on how she thought the election was stolen.

Election watchers on both sides of the aisle have dismissed claims and conspiracy theories that the election was stolen.
