Elizabeth Lauten, former communications director for Representative Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, has resigned. Lauten posted derogatory comments to Sasha and Malia Obama on Facebook last week after the teenagers appeared at the annual turkey pardoning the day before Thanksgiving.
In the post, Ms. Lauten told the girls to “dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar.”
“Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you’re both in those awful teen years, but you’re a part of the First Family, try showing a little class,” Ms. Lauten wrote.
After the comments went viral, Lauten made most of her Facebook page private.
