Michelle Bachmann's anti-gay stance is under fire once again. The Anoka-Hennepin school district has one of the highest suicide rates in the nation - and LGBT teens are at the highest risk. The school, however, had a "no promo homo" rule that doesn't allow them to say anything positive about gays and lesbians.

Lawrence O'Donnell talked with Ft Worth councilman Joel Burns, who came out dramatically to his constituents and colleagues during a city council meeting, last night about Bachmann's influence on the school's policy and exactly how much damage it's causing.

How horrid! I am always deeply saddened when I hear these things. No one deserves to be bullied or denied help. As for Bachmann she tends to offend me quite regularly.
