Did Michael Brodkorb shame her into it?

Breaking News: Bachmann Town Hall Scheduled for August 27th!

Breaking news! I just got off the phone with Rep. Michele Bachmann's Woodbury office; the Town Hall is scheduled for August 27th!

I was told while the location and place were not confirmed, the date is, and to keep checking Bachmann's website for details, or call the office - which is 651-731-5400.

Hat-tip to both Mark Brunswick at the Strib and Dusty Trice.

Stay tuned!

From the Strib:

While Ellison and McCollum have already held health care town meetings, each member of the Minnesota delegation plans to make health care a topic of discussion over the recess. But only one member, Sixth District Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has committed to holding a traditional town hall meeting. McCollum said she expects to have more later this month.

Dusty Trice reports on Bachmann's offices giving conflicting information:

People are getting conflicting information from Congresswoman Bachmann’s office. Some have been told to call the DC office, some are being told that they aren’t aware of any upcoming town hall forums and some are being told that there is a forum tentatively set for August 27th? Keep calling 202-225-2331 or 651-731-5400 or 320-253-5931 until you get a solid answer.

I happen to disagree with Bill Prendergast's proposal for an online town meeting. Nothing replaces the face to face interaction - and online meetings can't be manipulated in the same way that teletown halls can. Since Michele Bachmann is evidently planning on a town meeting on August 27, I encourage readers to put this on your calendar, and go - even if you have to take time off work in order to do so.
