Letter: U.S. Rep. Bachmann is an embarrassment to the state

Email News Alerts

I am responding to a letter to the editor that appeared in the Detroit Lakes Tribune at the end of November.

It was written by former resident Dick Flomquist, who was critical of the newspaper for running an unflattering editorial page cartoon of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.


He then went on to defend Ms. Bachmann and extol her virtues. He implied that those who live outside her district would likely not know enough about her to criticize her.
