Last week The Nation revealed that presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus own taxpayer-funded clinics that practice "ex-gay therapy" to cure patients of their homosexuality. So far, both Bachmanns have refused to acknowledge the clinics’ activities, raising questions not just about their business but also about Bachmann’s integrity as a candidate.

On MSNBC, Mariah Blake, who broke the story on TheNation.com, joins Reverend Al Sharpton to discuss the clinic’s activities and Bachmann’s failure to address her business’s damaging medical practices.
