Video shows Bachmann’s clinic engaging in ‘ex-gay’ therapy
On Monday, ABC News posted undercover video of Michele Bachmann’s Christian counseling clinic which shows one of her employees performing “reparative therapy,” a controversial therapy that attempts to turn gays and lesbians into heterosexuals. The video was captured by Truth Wins Out, a LGBT group that opposes such therapy.
Bachmann & Associates, a counseling clinic in Lake Elmo run by her husband Marcus, has taken in thousands of dollars in state and federal funding over the last several years. Rumors that the clinic performed the controversial therapy had swirled for years, and Marcus Bachmann had denied them in an interview with City Pages in 2006.
