WASHINGTON —Michele Bachmann was on ABC’s Good Morning America show today and was asked about a comment she made about the Founding Fathers fighting “tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.”

Contrary to Bachmann’s statement, several of the founding fathers in fact owned slaves. Additionally, all of the Founding Fathers were dead by the time slavery was abolished in 1865.

Bachmann defended the comment by saying that President John Quincy Adams fought against slavery, but George Stephanopoulos pointed out that Adams was not one of the founding fathers, but a son of a Founding Father and a former President.
