To the Valley News:
During the election season, we are sure to be deluged with false information about candidates via the Internet. It is our duty as citizens to check out which is true or not.
I have checked out the number of employees on Michelle Obama’s staff. Her staff is about the same size as Laura Bush’s staff. Lady Bird Johnson’s staff was bigger, as were Betty Ford’s and Jacqueline Kennedy’s. I received false information about this in my email several months ago. I was angry also, but by checking, I know it was sent out by someone trying to do harm to Mrs. Obama.
Keep checking the facts, folks. As the election gets closer, we will be receiving all sorts of misinformation.
