Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, a candidate for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination, has a received a lot of criticism over a comment she made stating that the Founding Fathers worked ‘tirelessly to end slavery’.
This morning on ‘Good Morning America’, George Stephanopoulos asked her if she stands by those comments.
She stated that John Quincy Adams worked tirelessly to end slavery. When George corrected her and informed her that John Quincy Adams was not a Founding Father she insisted that he was.
Now it appears that her supporters have altered Wikipedia to make it appear that John Quincy Adams was a Founding Father, even though he was only a child when his father John Adams, America’s second President, signed the Declaration of Independence.
Michelle Bachmann also misspoke yesterday, saying that John Wayne was born in Waterloo, Iowa, when in reality John Wayne Gaycee the serial killer was born in Waterloo, Iowa. The Wikipedia page for John Wayne was also changed to make his birthplace Waterloo, Iowa, even thought John Wayne was born in Winterset, Iowa.
