Campaigning Inside The Polling Place, Michelle Obama Broke The LAW
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 the pool reporter at the scene, the conversation took place IN 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, within 100 feet of any polling place."
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."
WHITE HOUSE DEFENDS ELECTIONEERING
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.
The issue isn't whether or not she supports her husband's agenda, it's where. And to think that she didn't know what she was doing is almost comical. I mean she is married to The President Of USA, a once State and US Senator which means he's run in at least 3 elections and let's not forget that she was also an Attorney in Illinois!! For the love of God, stop giving these people a pass!
I want the US Department of Justice to look into this, as soon as they finish with the voter intimidation by the Black Panthers, The Birth Certificate, The Sealed School Records from Columbia and Harvard, The Real Estate Deals with the now convicted Tony Rezko and well, I'm sure you can think of some others, Like Unconstitutional Punative Taxation against AIG Executives. You see where this is going, right?
