… Other interesting news, Michelle Backmann has become a Swiss Citizen, strange but true.
I wonder what her stance on FATCA is?
Oddly enough, Wikipedia has been updated to show that she is “American-Swiss” (born April 6, 1956) “is an American–Swiss Republican member of the United States House of Representatives … “
Otherwise I’ll just have to start up a referendum 🙂
It’s one thing if you are in my boat, born in the US with something that is expensive and difficult to get rid of like US-leprosy-citizenship. And it’s another to request citizenship and be granted citizenship. I would like to see someone get US Citizenship and then renounce it the next day. Imagine the scandal !
Seriously, what Michelle Bachmann did is spit in the face of the Swiss people and their laws. She’s basically saying that Swiss citizenship is a joke and you can throw it out like a cheap plastic bag.
Tell them to take her citizenship and give it to me! 🙂 I’d love to have Swiss Ctizenship.
Agree with geeez. All that Bachmann has done is offend Swiss people the world over. I would personally kill for Swiss citizenship as I am sure would the many immigrants in Switzerland who have to wait a minimum of 12 years to obtain citizenship there would do as well. Shame on you Michele Bachmann.
May her latest move further erode any credibility she may have had. Where do they find these people?
Reblogged this on Stop Unconstitutional Double Taxation.
Rivka88, I don’t believe Chuck E. Yeager was a dual citizen. Nowhere does he state that he was anything other than from Buck Holler. Glenn Edwards, (on the other hand) the namesake of Edwards AFB, was a dual Canadian/American citizen who was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
my mistake, I was researching dual citizenship US officers, must have transposed Yeager for Edwards. I served at Edwards at the end of the Vietnam war era. Knowing he was dual, could have helped in explaining by decision to move to Canada
“US-leprosy-citizenship” — sad but true!
