Elizabeth Lauten, an aide of a Republican congressman, has resigned after public criticism over her Facebook remarks on the US President Obama’s daughters, according to media reports.
Lauten, Stephen Fincher’s communication director, had written in an online post that Sasha, 13 and Malia, 16, ought to have displayed more “class” during the turkey pardoning ceremony at the White House.
She wrote the two should act like “being in the White House matters to you” and dress “like you deserve respect.” She even criticized the teenagers’ parents for being the poor role models.
