    Yeah, that's the ticket.

    So let's boil away the partisan nature of the source, if she WAS campaigning on site, should they do as the Ill. official says?

    It wouldn't matter if she had ten PhDs, she's First Lady which means she has permission to be stupid!

    Yeah! I mean her blatant disregard for the law could swing the vote of that one random dude who was already voting... early... maybe he hadn't already made up his mind...
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    Drudge has this as a headline, waiting for the "rest of the story". We'll see how it pans out, but I'm thinking Mrs. Obama was in fact, campaigning.
    But, but, that's different!

    Re: Chicagoland: First lady campaigned at polling place?

    This is funny because once you get passed the Drudge report most reports just said she was encouraging people to go out and vote early, which isn't breaking any law. A quote from the Fox Blog

    Rather, the elections official said, Obama told the group how important it is to vote early and vote in general, a perfectly appropriate suggestion at a polling place. Campbell's characterization of the conversation may simply have included his political position, that he voted "to keep her husband's agenda going," but not that the first lady had specifically encouraged Campbell to support Obama-friendly candidates.

    Even if one of the other voters had mentioned their support for President Obama and the first lady agreed, she would still not be in violation of election statutes because she would not, in that case, have initiated the political conversation.

    She campaigns for her husband just by BEING there - she's his wife and the first lady. Her face is a walking billboard.

    So, basically, who gives a damn?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
