Michele Bachmann sneaks a correction into the record

From Dump Bachmann:

In the beginning of this video Bachmann says she is a “former federal tax litigation attorney”. Bachmann was introduced on a Fox talking heads show recently as a “federal tax attorney”.

Actually, if I recall correctly, Bachmann’s J.D. is from Oral Roberts (since de-accredited), and her LL.M. in tax law is from William and Mary’s Marshall-Wythe School. She has not been legally able on the bar, or whatever they call it, for a long time.
