Michele Bachmann on Thursday was
heckled by a gay robot during a campaign stop in heavily Democratic
Iowa City, the Iowa
City Patch reported.
The man dressed in a robot suit shouted
Bachmann down during her rapid 20-minute campaign stop at Hamburg Inn
“I am a gay robot. I oppose
Bachmann's position on gays, whether they are human or robot,” said
the man, who declined to give his name but conceded he was the same
robot who heckled Bill Clinton at the University of Iowa in 2007.
The gay robot was booed and quickly
asked to leave the popular diner where about 100 people had come to
see the GOP candidate. (The video is embedded in the right panel of

A group of about 15 Occupy Iowa City
protesters also heckled Bachmann over gay rights.
“Michele Bachmann will fix the
economy by laying off workers and cutting their pay,” they shouted.
“Michele Bachmann fights proudly for marriage unless the couple
happens to be gay. You're not wanted here. You're not wanted here
so go, just go.”
Bachmann did not speak to the crowd nor
comment to the media.
