An activist, John Becker, went in secrecy into the private clinic of Bachmann pretending to be a patient and found the "reparative" therapy being offered.
An associated press reports that Becker had given the required notice when he canceled the appointments but recently, Bachmann contacted him asking for money and Bachmann threatened to send Becker to a collection agency:
"You'll be charged, and you owe us, so we're going to send you to a collection agency, whatever it takes to get the truth out of you," Bachmann told him, according to video of the conversation from WFFF-TV in Vermont, where Becker lives.
"You come under deception, you come under a total lie. and you didn't ask for this. John?" Marcus Bachmann told Becker while putting on the pressure. "Boy, that really is taking responsibility."
Of course, Truth Wins Out has no intention to pay:
"We call on Marcus Bachmann to immediately stop his petty and vindictive campaign of harassment and threats against our organization," said the group's executive director, Wayne Besen.
"Perhaps, now that Michele’s campaign is foundering, the Bachmanns are frustrated and looking for scapegoats to explain her failure. Truth Wins Out refuses to be intimidated or blackmailed by Bachmann. This bogus bill will not be paid."
