"Rep. Michele Bachmann ... appeared on Good Morning America Monday, where George Stephanopoulos attempted to clarify some of her previous statements. Among them: Bachmann’s claim that 'the Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence worked tirelessly to end slavery.' 'Now with respect, Congresswoman, that’s just not true,' Stephanopoulos said. 'Many of them including Jefferson and Washington were actually slave holders, and slavery didn’t end until the Civil War.' Bachmann dodged the question."
