(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.

WHOA....Newser fans out there. Can't you see false journalism when you read it. The source of this article was Raw Story. Raw Story source was Buzz feed. Buzz feed article which, stems this Newser assertions; uses words like, "may have" and "reportedly" and stuff like that. Both are VERY liberal and biased journalist known for promoting homosexual agendas. Just very careful of the sources. In fact, it is totally FALSE in my opinion...
