GOP staffer who called Sasha and Malia Obama 'classless' was arrested twice, age 17 & 19


http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/Elizabeth-Lauten-arrest-786543

Lauten, pictured above, was arrested in December 2000 for misdemeanor larceny, according to court records. Lauten, then 17, was collared for stealing from a Belk department store in her North Carolina hometown.

Because Lauten was a first-time offender, her case was handled via the District Courtís deferred prosecution program, which resulted in the chargeís eventual dismissal after the future scold stayed out of trouble for a prescribed period.

Since Lauten was just another teenager caught shoplifting at the mall, it appears unlikely that she was publicly pilloried for her lack of class, nor were her parents criticized as poor role models.


--- per other sources, she was arrested again at age 19

1. LOL.. Republican "Class"...

While I would hope that she learned a lesson from this, I expect she will be back in public soon, going even further down the rabbit hole (probably right over to the Daily Caller) while screaming that those "horrible libtards forced me from my job".

I hope the little darlin' has time on her hands to peruse social networking to see how much support she has compared to those awful, rude and unfashionable Obama teens. It might just open her eyes to the real world. Hey, Lauten? Looks like you've had your 15 minutes of fame and then some.

Leave those sweet girls alone...that includes their parents!

She reminds me of Joe the "Plumber", who thought it was a good idea to stand in front of TV cameras and spin a totally bullshit story to try to make Candidate Obama look bad. It just didn't occur to him that his lies would be found out, and it didn't occur to this dingbat that her past indiscretions would come to light.

Typical materialistic spoiled Republican brat.

I've been trying to track down background info on her. She's from Jacksonville, NC -- home of USMC base Camp LeJeune -- and the only Lauten I found in the town is a dentist.

Who cares? Sounds like you're just trying to discredit her by bringing up something obscenely minor from 15 years ago. In fact, you sound like the guys who criticize the president for smoking pot in high school. Teens do dumb shit. Period.

You don't have to try and make her look foolish by bringing up stupid crap from her childhood. She did that just fine all on her own.

52. Lauten should've reviewed Matthew 7 before opening her mouth

 

You know, the parts about not mounting one's high horse and sitting in judgment of others;

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brotherís eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ĎLet me take the speck out of your eye,í when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brotherís eye." (Matthew 7:1-5)


If you're going to act like Lauten did your past had goddamn well better be so clean that the Blessed Virgin Mary could eat off of it.
