"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 tells the DRUDGE REPORT that Mrs. Obama -- a Harvard-educated lawyer -- may have simply been ignorant of the law and thus violated it unintentionally.

The White House's only comment was issued by press secretary Robert Gibbs
"I don't think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband's agenda," Gibbs smiled.So, not only do we have a cabinet full of tax scofflaws, but a First Lady who will ignore state law when it suits her purpose.
