Bachmann’s challenger tells Salon the Congresswoman’s anti-Muslim campaign is “disgusting” and “dangerous”
BY ALEX SEITZ-WALD
Jim Graves is a wealthy Minneapolis hotelier who got so fed up with Rep. Michele Bachmann that he decided to run against her. The Democratic nominee talks with Salon about why he thinks Bachmann’s “disgusting” and “dangerous” Muslim witch hunt that may cost her her political career.
What’s your reaction to what we’ve been calling Bachmann’s “witch hunt” against Muslims in the government?
It’s definitely a witch hunt. It’s really terrible. It’s really disgusting. It’s horrible. I mean, quite frankly, America’s better than that. We shouldn’t be talking like this. We should be doing things constructively. They’re baseless allegations. They’re inflammatory. They’re divisive. They’re all the things that we don’t want in America.
