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.

I am writing today to demand an immediate end to your unethical and unprofessional campaign of harassment, intimidation, and character assassination that you are currently waging against Truth Wins Out and John Becker.
TWO sent Becker undercover earlier this year to see whether your clinic, Bachmann & Associates, would agree to help him change from gay to straight, despite the fact that this “reparative therapy” has no basis in research, is disavowed by literally every mainstream medical and mental health organization, and is known to increase the patient’s risk of anxiety, depression, and suicide. Your clinic agreed to do so and was caught on camera delivering the dubious “therapy;” the resultant scandal undoubtedly tarnished your own reputation and that of your business.
Despite the fact that Becker cancelled his remaining appointments as per your clinic’s no-show policy, you decided four months later to pursue him in an attempt to collect a fraudulent $150 debt for no-show fees that you are not owed. Your true intentions are abundantly clear: you wish to publicly defame and discredit Mr. Becker by falsely portraying him as a deadbeat unwilling to pay his bills, because you resent the fact that he and Truth Wins Out exposed your fraudulent practices.
These childish and vindictive tactics must stop immediately. Drop the wrongful charges, immediately stop harassing Becker and Truth Wins Out, and stop practicing harmful 'ex-gay' therapy.
