CNN anchor Don Lemon, recently came out, reports that members of the campaign team for Rep. Michele Bachmann including her husband Marcus Bachmann shoved him after an event for the candidate in Des Moines on Friday.

According to CNN, Lemon and another reporter from the network were among a ring of press and supporters that surrounded Bachmann after she spoke briefly at the Iowa State Fair and tried to make her way to a drive cart to exit.

“As both CNN staffers tried to question Bachmann, Lemon said he was pushed by two members of Bachmann’s staff,” reports CNN. “Lemon also said that Marcus Bachmann, the congresswoman’s husband, pushed him.”

As the clip below indicates, the openly gay anchor tried to ask Bachmann respectful questions about her debate performance on Thursday and her expectations for the Ames Straw Poll that takes place today.

Lemon said afterward, “I told them, asked them not to elbow me. And then her husband Marcus started doing the same thing. And then he elbowed me into the cart. And I said, ‘You just pushed me into the cart.’ And he goes, ‘No, you did it yourself.’”

The Bachmann campaign maintains they were trying to keep the candidate safe.
