The Fall of Elizabeth 'Molly' Lauten

This story of Elizabeth Lauten is one for the books.

The communications director... Well, the FORMER communication director for Rep. Stephen Fincher, thought it would be cute to hate on Malia and Sasha Obama in a FB post. Miss Lauten wrote:
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. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don’t respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I’m guessing you’re coming up a little short in the ‘good role model’ department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don’t make faces during televised public events.
Pure mess... So, within a few hours, social media came for her and left nothing in their attack.

On Sunday, Elizabeth apologized on FB, saying:
"I reacted to an article and quickly judged the two young ladies in a way that I would never have wanted to be judged myself as a teenager. After many hours of prayer, talking to my parents and re-reading my words online, I can see more clearly how hurtful my words were. Please know that these judgmental feelings truly have no place in my heart."
And yesterday, she resigned, but it wasn't over. Her past popped up everywhere, revealing that she was arrested for stealing at a store called, Belk. Then, this pic was passed around as well.
Yes, Miss girl learned a serious lesson in life. You come for the Obama girls, you get served.

The power of the internet.
Too bad that "communications" director didn't realize that before it was too late.
