Low Blow

Bad Timing

In the world’s most unfortunately timed press release, the Republican National Committee reported that the California GOP has filed suit against Obama for visiting his dying grandmother, The Washington Post reports. The complaint, filed with the Federal Election Commission, alleges Obama illegally used campaign funds for personal use when he flew to Hawaii to visit his ailing grandma. The release said Obama’s visit “was the right thing for any grandson to doat his own expensebut it was not travel that his campaign may fund.” Hours after the RNC sent its press release, Obama and his sister announced their grandmother’s death.
