On Capitol Hill, a Republican congressman’s aide resigned after she publicly criticized the behavior and dress of President Barack Obama’s daughters during a turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House. The Associated Press writes:
Elizabeth Lauten, communications director to Rep. Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, said Malia Obama, 16, and Sasha, 13, should have shown more “class” at a turkey-pardoning ceremony last week at the White House.
Lauten wrote that the girls should “respect the part you play,” and added: “Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the `good role model department.’ “
Lauten has since apologized.
