Michelle Obama clothes and jewelry

Well, it appears that Michelle Obama has a friend who is helping her by being the “gatekeeper” with designers who are giving Michelle clothing and jewelry. Here is an article that points out the tax liability about the “gifts” as well as the service she provides to the designer by wearing the clothing and jewelry. This article also explains the way the accepting of gifts could impact policy. Yep, even gifts of clothing can have an impact on how Obama does his job.

Michelle Obama is not exactly impoverished. Her husband has been making as much as $4.2 million a year, mostly from book royalties. In taking freebies from the fashion industry, she has introduced Chicago-style dealings to the White House and raised questions about any policies Obama may develop relating to the fashion industry. Her refusal through her press office to answer questions about the arrangement or to disclose the details conflicts with the president’s pledge to adhere to transparency.

I have included a link to the Reagan Library that explains the handling of presidential gifts and one about how gifts are handled if they are not kept.
