Michele Bachmann mourns ‘Anthony’ Scalia

Greg Nash

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Saturday mourned the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but got his name wrong.

{mosads}The former GOP presidential hopeful referred to the late associate justice as “Anthony” instead of “Antonin,” in a tweet praising the “finest” justice.

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.
