Musician Tom Petty has told newly announced Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to immediately stop using one his songs to promote his campaign.
“Petty isn’t pleased,” reported NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell,.
Rolling Stone confirmed that Petty’s lawyers sent the Minnesota Tea Party favorite congresswoman the cease and desist order.
During the end of Bachmann’s presidential announcement press conference, she played Petty’s “American Girl” to walk off with. Petty’s people sent the letter within 24 hours.
That’s two days and two screw-ups for Bachmann who started her campaign by confusing the birthplace (her hometown) of John Wayne with that of serial killed John Wayne Gacy.
