Michelle Obama Violates Illinois State Election Law!

Better Dig Deep Enough to Hide In!

Michelle Obama voted early today in the Martin Luther King Center in Chicago. Good Citizen. BUT, she then commented, while still inside of the polling place, well within earshot of voters voting in booths, that: (paraphrased by observer) “..how important it was to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going”.

Nice to support hubby but Illinios State Law Section Sec. 17-29 (a) states that “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.”

A top Ilinois State Board of Elections official excused this unlawful, unprecedented behavior by saying, “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.” DUH! She is a lawyer, she graduated from Harvard, she has been involved in Chicago politics for ages, she is the FIRST LADY, she better darn well know what the election laws state. Maybe this is why the AG Holder does not believe that when the Black Panthers threaten white voters outside of a polling place that it is voter intimidation. At least they threateded people OUTSIDE OF THE POLLING PLACE!

Enough is enought from this crowd. They know the law, they just don’t care.
