    Default No Biggie!!!




    FIRST LADY CAMPAIGNED INSIDE POLLING PLACE
    Thu Oct 14 2010 16:19:25 ET



    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 the pool reporter 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 prety 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.

    This is a complete joke! Rules are put in place for a reason. If one were to get caught speeding on a road they are not familiar with, do they not get a ticket from the state trooper? She should be using this opportunity to teach their kids how to take resposibility for their actions, regardless of their ignorance.

    I find it hard to believe that any one would thing she desires a break based on ignorance of the law. She was a lawyer and she has been involved in politics in the state of Illinois. When I lived in Illinois I got a ticket as a 16 year old for running a stop sign (the sign was bent over at a 45 degree angle and weeds had grown up to the top of the sign) on the other side of town. I did not get a break for being a young inexperienced driving. The reason for the ticket: I had lived in the town all my life so I should know all the signs. I paid my ticket. I did not get another ticket for 30 years and many city changes. So First Lady - Go to jail or pay your fees. The state is going broke thanks to all the social programs so I'm sure they will work a deal for the money and no jail time will be needed.

    MLK Blvd in Baytown, Texas would be my suggestion.

    And have someone take pictures! (have them stand at least 50 feet away)

    i am not an instigator - my own personal polling place is about 70% black, 25% white, the rest asian/hispanic. it would be wrong to go and instigate in another district. but it is perfectly fair to wear what i want in my own "hood". not a difficult endeavor, anyone who knows me knows i will do it in a heartbeat.

    its a done deal, i'll do it. unfortunately i have to do it in early voting at another polling place as i am due to drive 7 hours to get my new puppy on the 2nd......

    stay tuned!
