Obama hater Elizabeth Lauten was arrested as a teen

From ABC News

Elizabeth Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn., last week criticized the girls' demeanor during the annual White House turkey pardoning ceremony, writing on Facebook: "Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class.

"At least respect the part you play. 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. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events."

Lauten was widely criticized across social media for her comments. She then deleted her original post and wrote an apology on Facebook that she sent to ABC News.

"After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents, and re-reading my words online I can see more clearly just how hurtful my words were," Lauten wrote. "I'd like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and I pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have)from this experience."

In a phone call, Lauten choked through tears as she told ABC News that she had resigned Monday morning. She refused to discuss the circumstances surrounding her resignation, instead pointing to her Facebook apology as her comment on the incident.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he was “taken aback” by Lauten’s criticism of the president’s daughters, adding that all public and political figures must “choose our words wisely.”

“I was taken aback that there was a political operative on Capitol Hill who took the occasion of the Thanksgiving event to criticize the first family,” Earnest said, marking the first official comment from the White House on the incident.

Asked whether the White House believes in principle that the first daughters should be “off limits,” Earnest said, “A principle like that is pretty much common sense.”

“Me and all the people in this room have ability to speak publicly ... and we choose our words wisely,” he said. The incident is “a reminder of how important that is.”

Earnest said Lauten’s Facebook apology “was the appropriate thing to do” although he didn’t comment directly on her resignation.

Now this is where it gets really good

But Lauten’s own teenage offense was somewhat more serious. According to records uncovered by The Smoking Gun site, in 2000 at the age of 17, Lauten was arrested for shoplifting from a Belk department store in her native North Carolina.
As reported by The Smoking Gun, the arrest was a first offense for Lauten. Through an arrangement with the District Attorney’s office, she was able to have the charge dismissed after managing to avoid another arrest or other trouble with the law after a designated time period.
Sounds like a Republican to me.  She used to work for deabeat dad Rep Joe Walsh as well.
Malia and Sasha have been model children in the White House, unlike these two who were real barflies:

And they are also head and shoulders twenty times above this family:

Hoohah and Butthole shut your pieholes about being a victim.  You are not.  Thonghazi!


  1. She is a holier than thou hypocrite. I see a ton of these clowns on the right.

  2. So she choked through tears that she had to resign. did she? Too bad. She does not belong in the public realm. as does not the serpent skank.

  3. It is way too early, but I'll drink to that!

  4. I watched her on youtube she made in 2013?, I may have read too much into it which is why I wish a Professional Psychiatrist could interpret it. she kind of state she was in a dark place in 2012 (Obama re-election maybe?) then she perks up saying she found Jesus, she then encourage her friends, strangers? to join her in Church, they have service 5 times in 1 day, she tells people to call her anytime even in the middle of the night, I clearly could see her posting that to the Obama Girls, she seems like a troubled soul, I suspect it's going to be some time before she recover from this, which she deserves.

    1. Lauten's hateful, disrespectful remarks directed against the First Family were completely uncalled for and out of line. (Though what else would you expect from a racist GOP member?)

      I hope Lauten's past behavior, both personal and professional, continues to be exposed over the next weeks and months. Not just because she deserves the criticism and ridicule--she most certainly does, but because she forgot that old adage "if you can't say something nice about someone, don't say anything at all."

      It's one thing to report the truth, but another to talk trash to make yourself appear superior.
