Michelle Obama violated Illinois election laws when she went to vote early at a polling place in Chicago Thursday morning.
As reported by Jessica Puente of The Daily Caller, October 14, 2010, “Election laws in Illinois prohibit anyone from engaging in ‘any political discussion within any polling place,’ or ‘within 100 feet of any polling place.'” But the First Lady of the United States reportedly spoke with other voters in the polling place and urged them to keep Obama’s agenda going.
Charles Spies, an election attorney with Clark Hill, PLC, said that “Even if her conversations didn’t constitute electioneering, they almost certainly violated the broader Sec. 17-29 ban on engaging in ‘any political discussion within any polling place’.”
Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, a non-partisan public-interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, wryly remarked: “Technical violation, perhaps. But what are mere technical violations of voting laws to the Obama administration!”
H/t beloved fellow Tina.
Indeed, what’s a mere state election law to Michelle when her husband, The Fraud, flouts the very Constitution of the United States of America? Eh.
