Group Sues Michelle Obama Over Vacation Records
First lady Michelle Obama is being sued by the group, “Judicial Watch.” The conservative group is demanding access to all records related to an August 2010 vacation taken by Mrs. Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia. The group filed suit in the United States District Court to get access to all records on cost estimates and passenger manifests.
“Evidently, American taxpayers were stuck with a sizable bill so Mrs. Obama could tour around Spain with her family and friends, This administration, as a supposed steward of taxpayer dollars, has an obligation to disclose the full costs of the Obama family’s luxury trip,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton in a statement.
The Obama Administration is saying that the vacation was paid for out of the personal funds of the Obama family. They did say that security and other costs are typically paid for by the taxpayer.
