Census and Senseless

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who has fearmongered the Constitutionally-mandated census next year, may be facing a little census problem of her own. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune said in an editorial;

The 2010 census will likely determine whether Minnesota loses one of its eight U.S. House seats; population determines seat allocation. Political experts agree that a few thousand people not filling out census forms may be all it takes for the state to lose a congressional advocate in the nation’s capital. If Minnesota were to lose a congressional seat, Bachmann’s district appears to be candidate for absorption.

That’s karma for you.
