Sparkman was found on 9/12 in rural Kentucky tied to a tree. His ducktaped body was nude, except for his socks, and the words ‘FED’ were written across his chest with a felt tip marker. His Census badge was taped to the neck and upper chest area of his body. The FBI has been investigating whether the killing was related to his job as a Census worker. Killing a federal worker on the job or because of the job is a felony.
In the past, Bachmann claimed that filling out the Census would be the first steps to being put in an internment camp by the Obama administration. She even went as far as saying that she would not fill out her own census form. She has seemed to back off of that one, since that is obviously illegal.
According to David Weigel. reporter for the conservative newspaper, The Washington Independent :
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.
“Thank you so much!” she said.

***Special Note: To anyone who would like to make a wild-eyed comment stating that I am blaming this poor man’s death on Michele Bachmann. Please just stop and read what is written. I am only reporting what she has said in the past about the Census, and that she was asked the question by a conservative reporter, and that she refused to answer. That’s it, period. Full stop.
As I have stated many times, until the FBI and local authorities make a final decision about the cause and motive of his death, its all speculation.
