GOP HYPOCRISY: Staffer Who Bashed Obama Girls Has Teen Arrest Record (VIDEO)
Multiple sources including The Daily Mail are reporting that Elizabeth Lauten, the Republican congressional aide that ignited a firestorm on social media for ripping the first daughters Sasha and Malia Obama for lacking “class,” was herself arrested for shoplifting as a teen.
The Smoking Gun revealed that Lauten, the soon-to-be ex-communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, was arrested as a 17 year-old for shoplifting at a Belk department store.

Lauten ripped the first daughters on Twitter for the way they appeared at a traditional press event to pardon the Thanksgiving turkey. The offensive tweet read;
“I get you’re both in those awful teen years… try showing a little class….Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar.”
