Robert Gibbs Shrugs Off Michelle Obama’s Illegal Campaigning – Update: Video Added


Members of the ruling class don’t believe rules and laws apply to them. Michelle Obama was in Chicago and went to her polling place to cast an early vote. While there she was seen campaigning for the agenda of her husband. In doing so, she violated Illinois law. Her criminal action seems to be getting a pass.

Drudge: A top Ilinois State Board of Elections official tells the DRUDGE REPORT how Mrs. Obama may have simply been ignorant of the law and thus violated it unintentionally.

“You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right?” the official explained late Thursday. “I mean, she’s pretty well liked and probably doesn’t know what she’s doing.”


When questioned about the brazen nature of Mrs. Obama’s campaigning, press secretary Robert Gibbs defended the action.

“I don’t think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband’s agenda,” Gibbs smiled.

Wasn’t Michelle Obama once a lawyer in Chicago? Are we to believe she’s ignorant of the law?

Not only did she break the election law, she broke all sorts of fashion laws by wearing that ugly frock out in public.

Update: Here’s video of Michelle at the polling place, and below that is video of Robert Gibbs’ smug response. Oh, and that thing she’s wearing isn’t a frock, it’s worse!
