Has Michele Bachmann Exaggerated Her Role As A Tax Attorney?
Michele Bachmann punctuates her experience by mentioning her work as a litigator an involvement in “hundreds of civil and criminal cases,” but that may not accurately reflect her career as a tax attorney.
In her tenure as an IRS attorney in St. Paul, however, it appears that Bachmann seldom entered a courtroom and fully litigated only two cases in four-plus years, according to judicial records. Co-workers from the time describe her as pleasant and professional, but cannot recall one important case or criminal prosecution she handled…
Bachmann did not respond to interview requests or written questions about her IRS career for this story. But she has repeatedly cast herself as a former tax litigator without mentioning that her job was to represent the IRS against taxpayers.
