Michelle Bachmann (Former Republican Nominee for President) (Bachmann & Associates Inc.)
Some snippets from the Wikipedia entry on Michelle Bachmann:

-------------- • -------------- • --------------


    Bachmann in February 2011[/list]
      ...She was a candidate for the Republican nomination in the 2012 U.S. presidential election,[5] winning the Ames Straw Poll in August 2011 but dropping out in January 2012 after finishing in sixth place in the Iowa caucuses. Bachmann previously served in the Minnesota State Senate and is the first Republican woman to represent the state in Congress.[6] She is a supporter of the Tea Party movement[7] and a founder of the House Tea Party Caucus.[8]
    [/size] * * *
      ...In 1979, Bachmann was a member of the first class of the O. W. Coburn School of Law, then a part of Oral Roberts University (ORU).[13] While there, Bachmann studied with John Eidsmoe, whom she described in 2011 as "one of the professors who had a great influence on me".[15][16] Bachmann worked as a research assistant on Eidsmoe's 1987 book
    Christianity and the Constitution, which argues that the United States was founded as a Christian theocracy, and should become one again.[13][15][16] In 1986 Bachmann received a J.D. degree from Oral Roberts University.[1] She was a member of the final graduating class of the law school at ORU, and was part of a group of faculty, staff, and students who moved the ORU law school library to what is now Regent University.[17][/list][/size] * * *
      ...In 1978, she married Marcus Bachmann, now a clinical therapist with a master's degree from Regent University and a Ph.D. from Union Graduate School,[22] whom she had met while they were undergraduates.[13][23] After she received an LL.M. in taxation from William & Mary School of Law in 1988, the couple moved to Stillwater, Minnesota, a town of 18,000 near St. Paul, where they run a Christian counseling center.[13] Bachmann and her husband have five children (Lucas, Harrison, Elisa, Caroline, and Sophia). Bachmann said in a 2011 town hall meeting that she suffered a miscarriage after the birth of their second child, Harrison, an event which she said shaped her pro-life views.[24]

      Bachmann and her husband have also provided foster care for 23 other children,[25][26] all teenage girls. The Bachmanns were licensed from 1992 to 2000 to handle up to three foster children at a time; the last child arrived in 1998. The Bachmanns began by providing short-term care for girls with eating disorders who were patients in a program at the University of Minnesota. The Bachmann home was legally defined as a treatment home, with a daily reimbursement rate per child from the state. Some girls stayed a few months, others more than a year.[21]
    [/size] * * *
      ...Bachmann has cited theologian Francis Schaeffer as a "profound influence" on her life and her husband's, specifically referring to his film series
    How Should We Then Live?.[15][16] She has also described Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity by Nancy Pearcey as a "wonderful" book.[15] Journalist Ryan Lizza has argued that Bachmann's worldview is deeply influenced by the Christian movement known as Dominionism, citing the influence of Schaeffer and Pearcey as evidence.[15] Others have criticized Lizza's article, especially its connection of Schaeffer with Dominionism.[35][36][37] However, religion writer Sarah Posner broadly concurs with Lizza, pointing to the influence of Christian Reconstructionists Herb Titus and R. J. Rushdoony on Bachmann via the curriculum at O. W. Coburn School of Law.[38][39][/list][/size] * * *
      ...Bachmann and her husband own a Christian counseling practice named Bachmann & Associates.[40][41] The clinic is run by her husband, who has a PhD with “a concentration in clinical psychology”[42] from Union Graduate School. Marcus Bachmann is not a licensed clinical psychologist in Minnesota.[43] The clinic received nearly $30,000 from Minnesota government agencies between 2006 and 2010 in addition to at least $137,000 in federal payments and $24,000 in government grants for counselor training.[44] When asked about the subject in an interview, Bachmann indicated that she and her husband had not benefited at taxpayers' expense, saying that "the money that went to the clinic was actually training money for employees".[45] Marcus Bachmann has denied allegations that Bachmann & Associates provides conversion therapy, a controversial psychological treatment repudiated by the American Psychological Association, which attempts to transform homosexuals into heterosexuals.[46][47] A former client of Bachmann's clinic and a hidden camera investigator with the activist group Truth Wins Out have said that therapists at the clinic do engage in such practices,[48][49] although columnist Mariah Blake of
    The Nation has suggested the hidden camera investigator may have been intentionally baiting the therapist to say something controversial.[46] In a subsequent interview with the Minnesota Star Tribune, Marcus Bachmann did not deny that he or other counselors at his clinic used the technique but said they did so only at the request of a client.[27][/list][/size]

    Great job, Ursus! I didn't know all that about Bachmann.

    I've posted a bunch of links about Santorum & UHS here, also an article that ties Santorum to Sandusky: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=39139

    Linked that thread in the OP.  If there was a nice wrap-up thread for Romney, I'm all game.

    I'm crossing my fingers in the hopes of Marcus Bachmann getting together with Miller Newton and Dean Vause to sing the school fight song.  The Wiz could put it on his Youtube channel.

    ;D ...I thought of you, Ajax, when I came across that lil tidbit re. the Union Institute.

    Fwiw, I also came across Marcus Bachmann's pray-away-the-gay activities in a comment left for one of the articles on (former DeSisto headmaster and chief executive) Paul Babeu's current political fiasco.

    Speaking of Romney (nod to Xelebes)... In the aftermath of allegations of abuse of power, Sheriff of Pinal County Paul Babeu ended up stepping down as Arizona co-chair for Romney's presidential election campaign.

    Dunno what it is, but conservative politicians seem to have a natural affinity for or gravitation to programs. Or is it the other way around? :D
