Laws (and no Cheeseburgers) for Thee, Not for Me … Michelle Obama Violates Illinois Campaign Law by Having Political Discussion at a Polling Place


Marie Antoinette, Michelle Obama was at it again … laws are for thee, not for me … let the voters eat cake.

Can these people get anything right? I mean seriously, how can something so simple as voting be made a chore? Is it any wonder why they can’t get the big issue right?

First Lady Michelle Obama was caught breaking Illinois campaign election law by  But, there is always an excuse for these these people. Since when is ignorance a defence? You mean to tell “We the People” that after the MSM and the LEFT have told us that they are just so smart and intelligent that they did not know that you were not supposed to engage in political speak near a polling stating. Are you joking? Who knew that Michelle Obama just fell off the turnip truck?

“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.”

Does any one really think that the Chicago board of elections is really going to look into this as to whether campaign laws were broken by First Lady Michele Obama? Plueze!


From The Drudge Report:

First lady Michelle Obama appears to have violated Illinois law — when she engaged in political discussion at a polling place!

The drama began after Mrs. Obama stopped off at the Martin Luther King Center on the south side of Chicago to cast an early vote.

After finishing at the machine, Obama went back to the desk and handed in her voting key.

She let voters including electrician Dennis Campbell, 56, take some photos.

“She was telling me how important it was to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going,” Campbell said.

According to a pool reporter from the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES at the scene, the conversation took place INSIDE the voting center, not far from the booths.

Illinois state law — Sec. 17-29 (a)– states: “No judge of election, pollwatcher, or other person shall, at any primary or election, do any electioneering or soliciting of votes or engage in any political discussion within any polling place [or] within 100 feet of any polling place.”

In an unrelated story, the Gateway Pundit tells us that in the same day she also “snarfed” down a cheeseburger.I thought Michele Obama said that we were not allowed to eat fast food? I guess she meant us and not her. The hypocrisy astounds.

 When WH Press Sedcreatry was asked of the event, he did like he always does when the Administration is caught red handed doing something wrong, he just laughed it off. Let’s see if the  Obama WH is laughing on November 3, 2010.

      Snarfed? Seriously? If the original article is read, it is quite clear that his was not “fast food”, it was a restaurant with waitstaff.

      As for the actual point of the article, you have a good point. Why ruin and dilute it with unrelated fluff?

      As for the actual point, she should know better.

      Miss Katie’s has hosted notable people before. President Bill Clinton dined there with the German Chancellor. Other guests have included John and Elizabeth Edwards, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the cast of Happy Days.

      That woman is over the edge. I could not even where a political pin into the voting area, but she can do this? Can anyone say slap in the face to LAW ABIDING Americans by one who is uninterested in the laws, and clearly feels above them? Unreal.

      Oh Sweet Jesus, do these people ever stop. They should not get away with being above the law. It doesn’t matter who you are, or who you think you are. Just how many adjectives would it take to describe the character and composure of the Obama’s mess. Michelle knew what she was doing, as well as Barry’s monumental acts of being king of the hill and destroying our country.

      They are both like a train wreck….causing disaster and destruction.

      She has a law degree for crying out loud. To give her a pass is why these liberals behave as they do.

      Oh, I forgot, liberals don’t have to obey the law, they are above it.

      Unfortunately, we’ve become a nation of men, not a nation of laws. Michelle and her hubby are presiding over a Banana Republic which is what we have become by electing the enemy to the highest office in the land.

      Michelle is also guilty of voter fraud in Illinois….she knowingly voted in the wrong precinct. And why did she do it? The workers at the precinct knew she didn’t belong there.

      Just how crooked and corrupted was the Presidential election upon voting, in addition to, Is Obama eligible to be our President, the hidden and sealed documents would tell us and we have every given right to know…….!!!!!!
