Politico, a liberal publication based in suburban Virginia, has confirmed The Daily Caller’s report regarding Rep. Michele Bachmann’s migraine headaches.

According to the outlet:

In confirming several migraine incidents first reported Tuesday by the Daily Caller, a conservative online publication, POLITICO found new details of their effect on Bachmann’s performance and their pervasive influence on her congressional office.

… The Daily Caller also reported an October 2010 incident that forced Bachmann to lie down at the home of a Connecticut donor who was hosting a fundraiser, and then to seek urgent care treatment in New York. Sources with firsthand knowledge confirmed the report to POLITICO.

It is awesome they have confirmed this report. I was actually a bit unsure of the veracity of this story until just now …
