ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The gay activist who filmed undercover videos inside Marcus Bachmann’s counseling clinic says he’ll go to court if needed to fight a $150 fee he faces for canceled therapy sessions.

A lawyer for John Becker of Truth Wins Out warned the husband of GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann that legal action would follow if the clinic owner refers the matter to debt collectors.

During five sessions this summer, Becker posed as a patient grappling with same-sex attractions. Becker’s video shows him and a counselor discussing ways to overcome homosexual urges; Bachmann denies his clinic offers therapy to “cure” gays.

Becker had booked future sessions, which he says he punctually canceled.

Marcus Bachmann confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that he called Becker to press him for payment of no-show fees.
