(Newser) – So you decide to send an electronic head massager to your favorite congresswoman, who struggles with migraines. Seems like a nice gesture ... unless you forget to double-check what you're actually mailing. Strategy Group for Media, a conservative Christian political consulting firm, apparently forgot to do that ... which is how its CEO ended up gifting Michele Bachmann with a vibrator. The bizarre tidbit, noted by the Raw Story, comes in a longer BuzzFeed write-up of court documents related to the controversy-plagued firm.

Apparently CEO Rex Elsass sent an employee to purchase the massager, and the staffer goofed and got a "female pleasure machine," as the documents put it, instead. Sadly, the group was able to intercept the gift before Bachmann actually opened it.
