Michele Bachmann lays down with birthers, refuses to acknowledge Obama citizenship
BACHMANN: Mr. Speaker? I object to the vote on the grounds that a quorum is not present and make a point of order that a quorum is not present. [...]
REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS (D-MD): Further procedings on this motion will be postponed.
Update: Bachmann eventually voted for the bill after a quorum was present. The bill passed unanimously with 378 votes--there wasn't a single "no" vote. Bachmann also called for a quorum on several other issues that day that didn't involve insane denial of the President's birthright as an American citizen, according to Salon , so you may not want to read too much into it.
