Michele Bachmann is now a Swiss citizen.
The Minnesota congresswoman and former Republican presidential candidate was recently granted dual citizenship, Bachmann's office confirmed Tuesday night, according to CNN.
"Congresswoman Bachmann's husband is of Swiss descent so she has been eligible for dual-citizenship since they got married in 1978," spokeswoman Becky Rogness said in a statement. "However, recently some of their children wanted to exercise their eligibility for dual-citizenship so they went through the process as a family."
And, according to an interview with Swiss TV, Bachmann, who is currently seeking a fourth term in Congress after her failed bid for the White House, is now also eligible to run for office in the tiny European country.
Asked if she'd be interested in seeking office in Switzerland, Bachmann joked that "there's a lot of competition ... and they're very good."

So basically, it's no big deal.
If I could have dual Polish citizenship, I would get it in a heartbeat.
I don’t like dual citizenship. It should be illegal.
A man (or woman) cannot serve two masters. Besides, aside from the gun issue, the Swiss are a bunch of socialists like the rest of the pestilential Europeans.
If *either* of your parents or *any* of your grandparents were born *anywhere* in Ireland (including Northern Ireland) you're automatically entitled to Irish citizenship.But it only goes back two generations.It used to be three but they changed the law some time ago.
Eligibility is automatic with her marriage - but she would NOT have acquired Swiss citizenship unless she VOLUNTARILLY applied for it.

Have you looked into it carefully? You might want to ask a lawyer for advice. But before that, contact the Polish embassy in USA.
My grandfather was born in Askeaton, CO. Limerick, in 1889 when it was still part of the UK. I’ve got copies of his arrival in NYC and his application for US citizenship and his citizenship certificate in Detroit. My cousin applied for and received an Irish passport. If I were still traveling, I think I’d apply for one as well. One must be able to show proof that one’s grandparent was born in Eire.
I have no problems with this, except if she were become President and not renounce this Swiss citizenship. Otherwise, is hard to complain about a country that requires everyone to maintain and keep guns.
My kind of place. Pretty unique for almost the whole world.

Yes, if you have a parent who was born in Ireland. Check out the Irish consulate’s website.
Ireland used to grant citizenship by virtue of one’s grandparent being born there. They changed it after 9-11. Now it has to be a parent who was born in Ireland. First you apply for citizenship via foreign birth, then you apply for the Irish passport.
BTW, I could have applied for citizenship at the canton where a bunch of ancestors came from ~ but only in my 18th year.
These rules depend to some extent on which canton, your age, your degree of dependency, and so on.
I dropped my britches and saluted in their direction. Any other Conservatives similarly situated should do the same to keep their street cred.
That’s the national government. They have their rules; the cantons have theirs. So, which canton did this guy apply to?
Well, I guess I’ll just scrap that idea then. Thanks.
Yes indeed...and many other elites at the top of the food chain are doing likewise. It's their bug out residence as many purchase homes abroad. Hollywood is also doing likewise. Anywhere that revenues are high they're obtaining what is needed to bug out when the time comes.
The point is, whatever the canton decides, 1ST AN (voluntary) APPLICATION IS REQUIRED - CITIZENSHIP IS NOT AUTOMATIC.
Bachmann chose to apply for a foreign citizenship.
This move disqualifies her from the presidency.
Kind of an all encompassing RINO sort of thing when you think about it eh!
To me this is truly alarming! Can any of America's politicians be depended on to be loyal to America and the American people?
Not a move the "Founding Fathers," who she liked to speak and write about, would have approved of!
Her hubby has this medical business where he converts gay guys to other guys ~ and Switzerland allows quackery as well, not that you can't convert gays, but Switzerland allows quack medicine.
They allow you to kill people for money, so why not.
