Bachmann refuses to answer question regarding dead census worker.

Batshit-crazy Bachmann was a rockstar at the Value Voters Conference last week.

After her speechifying, David Weigel, of the Washington Independent, asked her a direct question regarding the death of the census worker:

After the speech, Bachmann had only a few minutes to sign autographs and collect a stack of CDs and books from fans who’d followed her into the lobby. I caught up to her as she headed outside and asked if she had any response to the murder of a Kentucky census worker, having noticed that the Census, a constant target for Bachmann, did not figure into her speech. Bachmann recoiled a little at the question and turned to enter her limo.

Why am I not surprised?

New details on the murder of census worker Sparkman

These details were provided by an individual that found the body. From a local tv channel:

A coroner says the word “Fed” appeared to be written with a felt-tip pen on a U.S. census worker found dead in eastern Kentucky.

Clay County Coroner Jim Trosper confirmed the detail Friday, but would not elaborate.

The body of Bill Sparkman was found hanging from a tree September 12, in Daniel Boone National Forest.

Jerry Weaver of Fairfield, Ohio, one of the witnesses who found the part-time census worker’s body hanging in a Kentucky cemetery, says the man was naked, and his hands and feet were bound with duct tape.

Thursday night Kentucky State Police said the preliminary cause of death was asphyxiation.

“Detectives are still conducting the investigation,” said KSP Trooper Don Trosper. “They are working on it daily to try to ascertain what exactly occurred.”

And they still refuse to call it murder.
