"I mean, she's pretty well liked and probably doesn't know what she's doing."

Illinois state law -- Sec. 17-29 (a) -- states: "No judge of election, pollwatcher, or other person shall, at any primary or election, do any electioneering or soliciting of votes or engage in any political discussion within any polling place [or] within 100 feet of any polling place." 

Guess who is doing just that? Yep, First Lady Michelle Obama. 
First lady Michelle Obama appears to have violated Illinois law -- when she engaged in political discussion at a polling place! 

A top Illinois State Board of Elections official tells the DRUDGE REPORT that Mrs. Obama -- a Harvard-educated lawyer -- may have simply been ignorant of the law and thus violated it unintentionally.

"You kind of have to drop the standard for the first lady, right?" the official explained late Thursday.
"I mean, she's pretty well liked and probably doesn't know what she's doing."
