Stop Harassing LGBT Rights Group; End Harmful 'Ex-Gay' Therapy

    1. Petition by

      Truth Wins Out

You won’t believe this.

Marcus Bachmann, the husband of presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, has launched a petty and vindictive campaign to personally harass Truth Wins Out. He is upset that in July TWO exposed his clinic for practicing “ex-gay” therapy. Prior to this disclosure, Bachmann lied to the American people and denied that his office engaged in these backwards and barbaric techniques. The revelation rocked Michele Bachmann’s campaign and became her first major roadblock.

Now that the campaign is foundering, she and Marcus are looking for scapegoats – and have settled on Truth Wins Out. They are spitefully taking aim at John Becker, trying to punish him because he went undercover and gathered video evidence of “ex-gay” therapy at the clinic.

Like the bullies they are, Bachmann & Associates is illegally demanding that Becker pay $150 for appointments that he had canceled in accordance with the clinic’s guidelines. Amazingly, Marcus Bachmann personally called Becker this week threatening to send the bogus bill to collections if it was not paid by Friday. Truth Wins Out retained the services of an attorney and steadfastly refuses to be intimidated or pay the fake bill.

Clearly, Marcus Bachmann is angry with Truth Wins Out for exposing his clinic’s fraudulent practices, and is engaging in malicious and vindictive strong-arming for the sole purpose of defaming and discrediting TWO and John Becker.

Stand with us today -- demand that Marcus Bachmann end these spiteful and malicious pursuits immediately and stop harming clients with discredited and harmful “ex-gay” therapy.

      Not only is his therapy morally wrong, but it is also prohibited by the American Psychological Assaociation (APA). If he is licensed, then he should be censured and come up for licensure review.

      If you don't want to be accused of malice then don't do malicious things. Pretty simple really. While I'm addressing you, I wanted to say: please ask your wife to stop speaking in public. She is giving Minnesota a bad name.
