Remove Michele Bachmann from the Intelligence Committee
This petition had 22,903 supporters
As a sitting member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, Rep. Michele Bachmann has a security clearance. Through her long record of inflammatory accusations against Americans based on race, religion, ethnicity, or alleged questionable associations with non-existent 'enemies,' she has demonstrated an obscene lack of maturity, knowledge of the law, understanding of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, and of rational thought.
Rep. Bachmann has recently made baseless accusations in a Joseph McCarthy-esque style about an infestation of our government by the Muslim Brotherhood. She has accused Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (and wife of former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner), and her family, who are Muslims, of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Bachmann's supposed "evidence" is solely based on erroneous and unsubstantiated rumor, and primarily information from notorious Islamaphobe Frank Gaffney.

Rep. Bachmann's latest hate mongering is final proof that she is unqualified to hold a security clearance or sit on the House Intelligence Committee, which requires handling sensitive matters vital to the security of the American people. Rep. Bachmann has a pattern of questionable judgement, and irresponsible and emotionally unstable behavior.
We demand that Speaker Boehner immediately remove Rep. Bachmann from the House Intelligence Committee without delay.
