Michelle was caught cheating on her expense report. What a show of arrogance!
I guess the Boston Globe and The NY Times forgot to print this.
This information was obtained by Judicial Watch March, 2012. The administration had to be sued to get this through the FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT.
Michelle Obama listed daughters as 'Senior Staffers' to justify her expensive African vacation and safari.
October 5, 2011, Judicial Watch said the U.S. Air Force provided a C-32 ( a Boeing 757 ), modified by the military for the purpose of flying big-wigs around the world, to fly the First Lady and her entourage to and from Africa , at a cost of $424,142. Another $928.44 was listed as ' bulk food' costs per meal for the 192 on board meals for the 21 people who made the trip . lobster ain't cheap when you fly it around the world.
The Obama daughters were listed on the manifest as senior staff. Also included on the trip were Mrs. Obama's mother, a niece, a nephew, her make-up artist and her hair stylist. 'This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business,' said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. 'This junket wasted tax dollars and the resources of our overextended military. No wonder we had to sue to pry loose this information .' The nation is suffering with the economy sputtering, the national debt soaring and Obama's economic rescue policies not only failing, but actively making things worse.
Meanwhile, the First Lady justifies an expensive trip to Africa to take a vacation and safari with her daughters by saying it's 'official business' and even going so far as to list her children as staffers. The level of arrogance and dishonesty on display here is nothing short of shocking. But, er, 'hope for change' and yes we can.
It's a true story. Check out this link and read it yourself:
