Students challenge Bachmann on gay rights


File this one under “the kids are all right.” Congresswoman Michele Bachmann met with potential voters and some soon-to-be voters at a Pizza Ranch restaurant in Waverly, Iowa, yesterday. Rep. Bachmann faced some pretty pointed questions from some young students about marriage equality and other gay rights issues.

Her answer on marriage equality clearly puzzles the kids. Bachmann tells them gay people do have the same rights to marry as straight people. They can also marry someone of the opposite sex, too. The looks on the kids’ faces say it all.
