Minnesota Congresswoman Michele
Bachmann has suggested her statement declaring gay marriage to be
“boring” was misunderstood.
Bachmann, who is not seeking a fifth
term, reportedly told The Huffington Post that marriage
equality is “not an issue.”
“In fact, it's boring,” Bachmann
told Michelangelo Signorile on Friday at the conservative Values
The story made headlines because
Bachmann, a Tea Party favorite, is a staunch opponent of marriage
“What I said is that this won't be
the issue that drives the 2014 election,” Bachmann told WND.com.
“I told the reporter it's getting boring having them only press
this issue with Republicans while ignoring Democrats.”
“The media loves to divide us on this
issue. The look for something all the time. I said nothing
different. I'm the woman who carried the traditional marriage
amendment in Minnesota, and I stand firm in my belief that marriage
should be between one man and one woman,” she added.
