The 28-year-old son of Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R) has turned down an offer to pose nude for the adult magazine Playgirl.


Daniel Nardicio, a spokesman for the magazine, told PopEater that the magazine made the offer to Lucas Bachmann after being struck by "how absolutely adorable he is."

"Plus, I think his political ties make him even sexier," Nardicio added. "Lucas is principled, which is also really compelling for our readers."

Bachmann described himself to the Star Tribune in March as a "William F. Buckley libertarian conservative."

He turned down the offer from Playgirl, saying that as a current resident in psychiatry at the University of Connecticut he needed to have a certain degree of anonymity when treating patients.

His mother, Rep. Bachmann, has been flirting with a 2012 presidential bid and has already raised $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2011, according to her newly released Federal Election Commission filings.
