Much of the research I draw from on this blog comes via Karl Bremer's articles at the Minnesota Independent, Dump Bachmann and his Ripple in Stillwater blog. Much of Karl's award-winning research about Frank Vennes is also included in "The Madness of Michele Bachmann" (Wiley & Sons, 2010).
Karl Bremer also took one of the few recent photos of Frank Vennes taken in from of the Federal Courthouse in St. Paul (see below).
My thoughts and condolences go out to Karl's family and many friends.
