Michelle Obama Fundraises in Houston with former Enron Executive

First Lady Michelle Obama abruptly cancelled her two long scheduled fundraisers in Houston that were to occur today. They will be re-scheduled for a later date.

One of the events was to be at a private home of one of Forbes 400 Richest people, a 37 year old former Enron executive.

Arnold, 37, one of the 400 richest Americans according to Forbes, was one of Barack Obama’s top financiers in 2008, bundling between $50,000 and $100,000 in contributions for his election campaign, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. He has personally given the legal maximum — $5,000 — to Obama for 2012, records show.

Where is the outrage coming from the left side of the aisle that First Lady Michelle Obama is fundraising at a private shindig with a former Enron executive? Where is the media curiosity about this event?

Can you imagine if say, Mitt Romney or Rick Perry were attending a fundraiser put on by an Enron guy?

Michelle Obama was suppose to do a larger event earlier in the day and then the private event. All of the money was to go to the Obama Victory Fund, a part of the Obama re-election campaign.

Interestingly enough, the First Lady will go to her scheduled event in New Orleans Tuesday, despite cancelling the Houston events. She will do a fundraiser and an event for her "Let's Move" program.
