Republican Staffer Goes After Obama’s Kids
Elizabeth Lauten, communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, attacked not only President Obama and the First Lady, claiming they “don’t respect their positions very much,” but attacked Malia and Sasha as well.
Lauten took to Facebook again with an apology, but it’s been deleted:
I reacted to an article and quickly judged the two young ladies in a way that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager. After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents and re-reading my words online, I can see more clearly how hurtful my words were. Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no pace in my heart. Furthermore, I’d like to apologize to all of those who I have hurt and offended with my words, and pledge to learn and grow (and I assure you I have) from this experience.
