MICHELLE OBAMA BREAKS THE LAW AND EVERYTHING IS FINE AND DANDY.....WRONG
Everyone knows this except, according to the Illinois Board of Elections, Michelle Obama. Obama was in Chicago campaigning for Democrat candidates and while she was there visited her local Chicago precinct and cast her vote early for the mid term election. Now it is normal for a big media presence and plenty of meet and greets when someone of the stature of First Lady goes to vote.
But Michelle Obama went way beyond meet and greets. After she cast her ballot and returned the ballot key to the volunteer, Obama proceed to blatantly campaign IN THE POLLING place which is a violation of Illinois state law. Obama discussed with one or more voters how important it was for them to vote for Democrats to help continue her husbands agenda.
Illinois election law prohibits campaigning or even political discussion in or within 100 feet of any polling place. Yet Obama proceeded to tell voters how important it was to elect Democrats in order to help her failing husband. A clear violation of Illinois law and an offence for which anyone else would be arrested for. But not Michelle, no sir, with her everything was fine and dandy.
Illinois Election officials were asked about Obama's violation of the law and defended her actions by saying, "You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right ? I mean, she's pretty well liked and probably doesn't know what she's doing." While I agree in other instances Obama does not know what she is doing, as a former lawyer she is NOT ignorant of the law and as they say ignorance of the law is no excuse.
When Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked about the incident he fluffed it off by saying, "I don't think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband's agenda." So the excuses fly, a violation of the law in which any other citizen would be arrested for is fluffed off as nothing and an Obama gets yet another pass for violating our laws while a liberal press, who would latch on to any Republican doing the same, laughs it off as just another day in Obamaland.
