Mr. Bachmann, why are you hiding your service to Monsanto from the US Chamber of Commerce’s members?

One of the largest contributors to the Republican Party, the US Chamber of Commerce (also recently charged with fraud and money laundering), has a senior member with an odd bio.

John Bachmann is a current member of the Monsanto’s Board of Directors and past Chairman of the US Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors and current member of the same BoD. He also sits on the board of AMR, owner of American Airlines, and is a senior partner at Edward Jones.

Though Bachmann’s other business associations are mentioned, glaringly and obviously absent from his US Chamber of Commerce bio is any mention of his service to Monsanto:

[Monsanto: phrase not found]

In his Monsanto bio however, he’s pretty proud of his service to the US Chamber of Commerce.
