Michele Bachmann Confronted By 'Gay Robot' During Iowa City Stop

Posted: Updated:

By now the GOP presidential candidates have seen it all: hecklers, protesters, haters of all shapes and sizes. Well, mostly all.

On Thursday afternoon in Iowa City, Michele Bachmann encountered a man dressed in a robot suit, who shouted her down with the aid of a built-in megaphone. He called himself, "roboprof," and was quickly asked to leave Hamburg Inn No. 2, where Bachmann made a campaign stop.

"I am a gay robot. I oppose Bachmann's position on gays, whether they are human or robot," said the man, who declined to give his name, although he admitted to be the same robot who heckled Bill Clinton at the University of Iowa in 2007.
