Michele Bachmann mourns ‘Anthony’ Scalia
Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Saturday mourned the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but got his name wrong.
God bless Anthony Scalia, finest Sup Ct Justice RIP

Scalia was found dead in a hunting resort in West Texas Saturday. He was 79.
Bachmann, a Tea Party favorite, retired from Congress last year after deciding not to run for reelection.
She ran for president in 2012 and was a serious contender after winning an early straw poll in Iowa. But her candidacy quickly stalled, and she exited the race before the New Hampshire primary.
