Michelle Obama Caught Violating Illinois Election Law

Developing story, Michelle Obama, First Lady of America cast an early vote in her South Chicago District. After casting her ballot and returning her voter key, she apparently paused for photos to be taken of herself and engaged others voters in political discussion INSIDE the polling place, encouraging voters to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs defended Mrs. Obama saying, “I don’t think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband’s agenda.”

Mrs. Obama, a Harvard educated lawyer, “may have simply been ignorant of the law and thus violated it,” claimed top Illinois State Board of Elections official. The official added, “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.”

Illinois 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.”

The Chicago Sun-Times reports on Mrs. Obama’s voting and includes, “‘She was telling me how important it was to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going,’ said Dennis Campbell, a 56-year-old electrician.”

Curiously, the Chicago Tribune, via the LA Times included in their coverage, “Obama abided by election laws that prohibit electioneering within 100 feet of a polling place,” with no reason given for the defensive sentence.

When It Counted, Kitzhaber Ran Away. See Dr. Do Over’s Dirty Dozen.

This is a list put together by Jim Pasero at Third Century Solutions of the 12 most jaw dropping things former Governor John Kitzhaber did during his tenure as Oregon’s chief executive. Note: When it counted he ran away.When the state needed leadership he ran away. When he needed to stand up for what’s right he ran. He conducted himself like a self involved, petulant child.

1) Faked heart attack when state was flooded in 1996 and Vera was filling sandbags
2) Said health care should have been reformed on state level rather than federal after being feted regularly by “The Economist” for medical rationing
3) Vetoed Secondary Lands bill in Washington Park in 1995.  Governor threw tantrum in front of WW II veterans and stormed off – later told press he doesn’t “do public” well
4) Rip-rapped his own Neskowin beach house when others couldn’t protect their homes
5) Built on his 10 acres on Umpqua River when land was zoned Exclusive Forest use
6) Vetoed a record 100 bills in 1997 Oregon legislature
7) Refused to do interviews with media other than liberal media – even though he said he changed for this latest campaign — really?
8) Fleeing scene of Biscuit Fire five minutes before President Bush arrives, and leaving Sen. Wyden alone and furious
9) Unable to get along with legislative leaders – including Secretary of State of his own party, Phil Keisling
10) Refused to attend National Governors Association meetings, which at the time included innovative governors such as Jeb Bush, Tommy Thompson, John Engler, Bill Weld. Why? Because Kitzhaber already had the answers
11) Went fishing after 9/11 for a week when country was in crisis
12) Wanted to tear down dams on Snake River and freaked out then-Washington Gov. Gary Locke
