Uh-Oh… Michelle O Campaigns In Polling Place!! May Have Violated Law (VIDEO)

Following the Law is for Thee… But Not For Me.

Michelle Obama reportedly campaigned for her husband and his radical agenda at a Chicago polling station today.
FOX News reported on the infraction:

Drudge reported:

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 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.

Related… She also snarfed down a cheeseburger today too.

More… Bruce added this:

There’s NO WAY you can spend as much time running for office and working on political campaigns over the last ten years, as these two have, and be ignorant of this most basic of basic election laws.
NO. WAY.

    The way to support her husband is by not breaking the law.
    Man they outrage me!

  • Fred

    Well she just set the standard for the midterm election, eh? Now how many poll workers won’t bother to uphold the law?

  • M Malone

    You can’t even wear political buttons or clothing in a polling place, even if you’re a voter, so politicking is a big no-no.

  • Fred

    You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right?”

    Wrong!

    Remember folks, this DOJ will not pursue election tampering cases where the offenders are black.

    And MO, is black.

    Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    Unless I say so.

  • Wright

    Just when you thought this administration could go no lower, it goes lower.
    For the rest of us peons, ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    Oh, for heaven’s sake, we are talking about Chicago here!

    Good point. You can’t really hold the nobility to any standard of conduct. What kind of message would that send to the serfs?

  • Chisum

    Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    ======================

    Perhaps FLOTUS should watch Meet The Press occasionally.

  • down with dems

    How do you prove unintentional violation of the law??? If she gets no punishment, then everyone will do this and claim they didn’t know. If she gets no punishment but others who commit the same crime DO get punished, it’s clearly inequality and a double standard of justice.

    But this is Chicago, so we know what will happen.

    Ignorance of the law my foot. This woman is a lawyer from Illinois. If she’s that ignorant of the law she should be disbarred. We haven’t forgotten that the man she’s stumping for is suing Arizona for POTENTIALLY breaking laws. The 112th Congress should censure her AND Tea Party voters should sue her since the State won’t do anything.

  • Jean

    Even she can’t stop the wave.

  • Barry S.

    Laws? We don’t care about no stinking laws!

  • Joel

    Ha, ha…if you think any liberal gives a care about this your wrong.

    There are enough other issues that do matter to the left and they will let their displeasure with ‘Barack’ be know come election night.

    And it will be quite enjoyable watching the talking heads explain why it happened.

  • Ginger

    She’s not the first lady….she’s a FRAUD!
