Elizabeth Lauten, the GOP staffer who criticized Obama’s daughters was charged with this crime as a teenager.

The GOP Staffer Elizabeth Lauten, who publicly criticized Obama’s teen daughters on Twitter about their appearance and demeanor during the annual White House turkey pardon before Thanksgiving, turns out to have her own skeletons in the closet during her “awful teenage years.”

Below is an image of the Tweet:

While Lauten self-righteously reprimanded Obama’s daughters it turns out she herself has been arrested before for misdemeanor larceny, according to court records. Lauten, at the time 17-years-old, was arrested for stealing from a Belk department store in her North Carolina hometown, according to the Smoking Gun.

Three days after the disparaging comments were made Lauten decided to resign from her position as the communications director for Tennessee Rep. Steven Fincher. As the saying goes, “When you point the finger, you have 3 others pointing back at you.”
