Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who said she was afraid to take part in the census, was asked to comment by Washington Independent reporter David Weigel on the death of Kentucky census worker Bill Sparkman.


After the speech, Bachmann had only a few minutes to sign autographs and collect a stack of CDs and books from fans who’d followed her into the lobby. I caught up to her as she headed outside and asked if she had any response to the murder of a Kentucky census worker, having noticed that the Census, a constant target for Bachmann, did not figure into her speech. Bachmann recoiled a little at the question and turned to enter her limo.


“Thank you so much!” she said.


Bachmann previously claimed that the census was used in the 1940’s for the internment of Japanese, contrary to its privacy policies, and implies that the Obama administration would similarly misuse census information.
