Bachmann Reports Income From Family Farm That Received Aid

Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, a critic of federal spending, received between $5,000 and $15,000 in income last year from a family farm that has received more than $250,000 in federal subsidies, according to her most recent House financial-disclosure form.

Bachmann, winner of the Aug. 13 Iowa Straw Poll for Republican presidential contenders, also reported that her interest in the farm was valued at between $500,000 and $1 million in 2010; a year earlier, she assigned the value of Bachmann Farm Family LP at between $100,000 and $250,000. Lawmakers can list income and assets in broad ranges.
