Do you know you’re paying for Michelle Obama’s 22 Assistants?

First Lady Michelle Obama

The first lady of the United States is not elected, has no constitutional duties and receives no salary, but that doesn’t mean the position is without its privileges – including a staff of 22 White House employees who make a combined nearly $1.5 million per year.

Various journalists have scoured the White House’s annual report to Congress on the West Wing payroll and listed those names that serve as members First Lady Michelle Obama’s staff. Combined, their salaries total $1,495,700.

By comparison, a similar examination of the 2008 payroll, printed in the Washington Post, shows First Lady Laura Bush tallied 17 staffers, who combined made roughly $1.28 million.

News of so many taxpayer-funded salaries attending the first lady – which doesn’t include the White House servant staff or the Secret Service detail assigned to the first family – has prompted some commentators to question if so many staffers are necessary.

“[Michele Obama] doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession,” writes author Paul Williams in a July 7 editorial. “Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary. How things have changed!”

As first lady, Michelle Obama has been criticized for various purported “extravagences,” including a $540 pair of designer sneakers she wore to visit a D.C. food bank in April and a shopping trip in Paris with her daughters, for which French President Nicolas Sarkozy bent the nation’s laws by asking the boutiques to open for the Obamas on Sunday.

The Paris shopping trip, and a similar jaunt through the streets of London, were part of a highly controversial European vacation that the first lady took with her daughters in June, sparking a firestorm of questions about the reported 20 taxpayer-funded Secret Service vehicles parading through Europe with the first lady and the costs of transporting the security detail overseas.

Leslie Paige, a spokeswoman for Citizens Against Government Waste, told the Boston Globe that few Americans would begrudge the first family some presidential perks – as long as the expenses don’t grow to be indulgent on the taxpayer’s dime. Paige did, however, criticize the White House for failing to report how much Americans paid for the first lady’s vacation.

“I doubt we’ll see the true cost of the trip to Paris,” Paige said. Not keeping his promise to run a transparent government, she added, “has been a disappointment, to say the least.”

Since 1995 the White House has been required to report to Congress details of most of the West Wing payroll. Those listed that are assigned to the first lady carry various titles, including chief of staff, White House social secretary, director of communications for the first lady, director of scheduling and advance for the fist lady, special assistant and personal aide to the first lady, and various deputies to the directors, among other titles.

The highest paid of Michelle Obama’s assistants is her chief of staff, Susan Sher, who makes the maximum allowed for a White House staffer at $172,200. The entire list of the First Lady’s assistants can be seen, among other places, printed in a column by Chicago Sun-Times Washington Bureau Chief Lynn Sweet.

In May, before a crowd of business executives in Washington, D.C., Michelle Obama called her current life in the White House “a very blessed situation, because I have what most families don’t have – tons of support all around, not just my mother, but staff and administration. I have a chief of staff and a personal assistant, and everyone needs that.”

According the to a Washington Post report, she reiterated with a laugh, “Everyone should have a chief of staff and a set of personal assistants.”

  1. What was it I read on WND? That Michelle said she had given up her legal practice because she did not want to work for corporate America? She’s now a mini corporate America all by herself with her entourage of staff.

    Michelle was legally disciplined and prevented from ever practicing law again because she was busted in insurance fraud.
    She had no “practice” to give up anyway, unless she considers how she used to get paid for patient dumping and extortion.

    Not so much the pay as the cost.. 22 assistants? for what? Curious, what did the previous first ladies have? As far as Mommy living with them, not an issue. Many of our former presidents did the same. Along with having children over 21 living with them.

    Michelle Obama’s Staff

    Q: Does First Lady Michelle Obama have an “unprecedented” number of staffers?

    A: A spokeswoman for the first lady says that Michelle Obama currently has a staff of 24. That may indeed be the largest of any first lady, but Hillary Clinton, with 19 staffers, and Laura Bush with at least 18 and perhaps more, weren’t far behind.

    FULL QUESTION:

    Is this accurate? And how does it compare to prior first ladies’ staffs?

    Recession, Depression, What, Michelle Worry?

    July 7, 2009

    Dr. Paul L. Williams

    “In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said. “See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service, ” Michelle Obama.

    No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn’t perform any official duties. But this hasn’t deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.

    How things have changed! If you’re one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michelle are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:

    1. $172,2000 – Sher, Susan (Chief Of Staff)

    2. $140,000 – Frye, Jocelyn C. (Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Policy And Projects For The First Lady)

    3. $113,000 – Rogers, Desiree G. (Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary)

    4. $102,000 – Johnston, Camille Y. (Special Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady)

    5. Winter, Melissa E. (Special Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

    6. $90,000 – Medina, David S. (Deputy Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

    7. $84,000 – Lelyveld, Catherine M. (Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady)

    8. $75,000 – Starkey, Frances M. (Director of Scheduling and Advance for the First Lady)

    9. $70,000 – Sanders, Trooper (Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady)

    10. $65,000 – Burnough, Erinn J. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

    11. Reinstein, Joseph B. (Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary)

    12. $62,000 – Goodman, Jennifer R. (Deputy Director of Scheduling and Events Coordinator For The First Lady)

    13. $60,000 – Fitts, Alan O. (Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady)

    14. Lewis, Dana M. (Special Assistant and Personal Aide to the First Lady)

    15. $52,500 – Mustaphi, Semonti M. (Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary To The First Lady)

    16. $50,000 – Jarvis, Kristen E. (Special Assistant for Scheduling and Traveling Aide To The First Lady)

    17. $45,000 – Lechtenberg, Tyler A. (Associate Director of Correspondence For The First Lady)

    18. Tubman, Samantha (Deputy Associate Director, Social Office)

    19. $40,000 – Boswell, Joseph J. (Executive Assistant to the Chief Of Staff to the First Lady)

    20. $36,000 – Armbruster, Sally M. (Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary)

    21. Bookey, Natalie (Staff Assistant)

    22. Jackson, Deilia A. (Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady)

    There has never been anyone in the White House at any time that has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady’s social life. One wonders why she needs so much help, at taxpayer expense, when even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help came from the President’s own pocket.

    Note: This does not include makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Miles, 49, and “First Hairstylist” Johnny Wright, 31, both of whom travelled aboard Air Force One to Europe.

    FULL ANSWER:

    The White House published the 2009 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff on its official blog on July 1, listing the title and salary of many White House office employees. A few days later, a fuss began online over the number of people who are assigned to work for the Office of First Lady and how much they earn per year.

    A blog post from Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynn Sweet on July 6 put the spotlight on “What Michelle Obama’s Staffers Earn.” The staff of TheLastCrusade.org, a Web site that describes itself as a place “where you can engage in the life and death struggle against the forces of Islam, apostasy, moral complacency, cultural relativity, and the New World Order,” then took the information and posted a piece claiming that the first lady had hired an “unprecedented number of staffers” to “cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession.” That piece was also posted on the conservative Web site CanadaFreePress.com under the byline of Dr. Paul L. Williams, who runs TheLastCrusade.org. That post has become part of a chain e-mail that some of our readers have passed on to us, and the e-mail expands upon Williams’ post, falsely claiming that some recent first ladies have had only one or three staffers.

    How Many?

    According to the 2009 White House report to Congress, there are 16 people with a title specifically indicating they work for Michelle Obama’s office. In other words, there are 16 people with “first lady” somewhere in their title, such as Jocelyn Frye, deputy assistant to the president and director of policy and projects for the first lady.

    The list reported by Sweet and The Last Crusade, however, includes six other staffers who do not have “first lady” in their title but are a part of the first lady’s office staff, such as Desiree Rogers, special assistant to the president and White House social secretary, and Natalie Bookey, staff assistant.

    We contacted Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary, to check the list’s accuracy. Lelyveld told us in an e-mail that the first lady’s current staff size is actually 24, not 22, as the chain e-mail claims. Lelyveld couldn’t provide a list of the staffers at that time.

    First Ladies Past

    The chain e-mail’s author claims that “[t]here has never been anyone in the White House at any time that has created such an army of staffers whose sole duties are the facilitation of the First Lady’s social life.” The author claims that “even Hillary, only had three; Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one.” But the counts for those first ladies are incorrect – and they’re way off.

    Stephen Plotkin, reference archivist for the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, told us in an e-mail that Jacqueline Kennedy’s office was “headed” by one person, but said that there were “at least 9 people working for Mrs. Kennedy, with the promise of a great many more” during her time at the White House.

    Kim Coryat, an archives technician at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, told us it can be difficult to nail down a precise count of staff considering “White House staffing for all offices ebbs and flows with time.” But she said in an e-mail that White House telephone directory records indicate that Hillary Clinton had at least a staff of 13 as of October 1993; 18 as of April 1997; and 19 as of March 2000.

    Lelyveld said that Michelle Obama’s staff was actually no different than that of her predecessor, Laura Bush. “[W]e have exactly the same staff number as Mrs. Bush and our office organization reflects a similar staffing model, so insinuations otherwise are wrong,” she said. Lelyveld said that the White House’s “personnel records indicate” that there were 24 staffers for Laura Bush at some point. We were able to verify at least 18 staffers for Laura Bush, as of June 30, 2008, via the 2008 White House staff list published in The Washington Post’s White House Watch column. Sixteen people were specifically referred to as a “first lady” staffer, and Amy Zantzinger and Dorothy Thornton served as White House social secretary and deputy social secretary, respectively. It’s possible that someone with the title of “staff assistant” was assigned to the Office of First Lady as well, as is the case with Michelle Obama’s staff.

    The combined annual salaries for the 22 staffers we can specifically identify as working for Michelle Obama come to $1.6 million. For the 18 we could identify as working for Laura Bush in 2008, the total is $1.4 million.

    Dr. Myra Gutin, a professor of communications at Rider University and a first ladies historian, says that the first lady’s role has certainly “grown and evolved” since the 1960s, but generally speaking, the first lady’s “staff numbers about 14-16.” Gutin told us she recalled “some first ladies have had staffs of more than that.”

  29. kristy

    btw pssst… kels… I’m a black chick ;-)

    therefore I cant be a racist by your standards :)

  30. lol

    Kels is probably one of the 22 assistants.

    Pretty funny where she is writing from

  31. AnnaEsse

    Kels is typical of the brainwashed idiots who voted for Obama simply because he is a black guy and he can chant a few mantras and read off a teleprompter.

    At the weekend, a friend of mine, who is otherwise very intelligent, said how wonderful it had been to see a black family at the White House. If it was just about the colour of the skin and the ability to repeat two words endlessly, “Hooooope…..chaaaaaange,” and read off a teleprompter, it would have been much simpler just to grab some black guy off the unemployment queue and invent a past for him. Hang on, though! Sounds about right, doesn’t it?!!!

  32. Anna

    LOL

    brilliant story, sadly it’s all the same across the USA and world

    Black people really think they have a black president.

    98% of black people are easily sold on lies and bullshit, it’s part of their mentality from the many years of slavery in their family history.

    They need someone to own them, they need a master in their lives. They can’t be free and think for themselves.

    Although, 2% didn’t vote for him back in Nov. 2008, we think that number is now at 15-20% if the election happened today.

    The good thing about Obama the more the idiot speaks, the more it wakes up those blacks who are starting to realize they voted for a fucking slave master.

    Black people that voted for Obama and still have not woken up, are truly TRULY the dumbest idiots on this planet.

  33. We cant understand how people cannot see right through the bullshit that is Obama.

    It’s a staged production.

    Everything is so fake. Everything.

  34. Frosteetoes

    “kels goes koo koo for obama cocks!”

    ROFLMA!!!!!!

  35. Frosteetoes

    Yeah, we keep getting called racist yet 98% of blacks voted him because of his color. Whites did too because they felt guilty and based their votes on the mans race. The race was all about his race, and not the content of his character or his political history in senate. That part was just ignored just like his nefarious associations.

  36. Whites that voted for Obama are sheer idiots

  37. Frosteetoes

    Seriously, I know some people who voted for him because of his race.

  38. AnnaEsse

    I think that my friend, a white woman, had she been in the US, would have voted for Obama, simply because a black face, for her, represented “hope and change,” as it did for many black people who have been brought up on seeing themselves as descendants of slaves and therefore, in a way, still in shackles. Seeing a black face at the White House was the ultimate journey from slavery.
    However, Barry is not descended from slaves and he may be half black or he may be described as half white, but he is totally the puppet of the powerful elite who control the wealth and who engineered his rise to power.
    My friend finds that hard to accept, as I imagine do lots of people who voted for Obama. She’s a very kind-hearted person.
    Those of us who have seen through him from the beginning have risked being called racist, but I am sure glad there are so many folks in the US who are still working to expose Obama as a fraud and a usurper. God bless you, every one of you.

  39. zen

    It’s amazing how small minded most people posting on this site are. First, back to the original issue… the email sent around to get people against Obama was grossly overstated considering Laura Bush had an even larger staff according to her own staff’s admittance. Second, many of you who believed it and support it, Kristy and Frosted mostly, have no better response than to degrade the discussion into rude, crude, and disgusting attacks. No wonder you don’t understand adult issues you can’t even debate in an adult manner. Go ahead, say what you want about me now, I will never return to this worthless site to demean myself with your childish comments.

    Good Lord people, your hoods are showing…over stupid stuff as this

  42. Kels

    Do you know you’re paying for Michelle Obama’s 22 Assistants?

    Yes I did, but it would seem there is a ignorant % of Americans who did not know we have been doing this since there has been “First Lady’s” somehow some have just noticed this since the Obama’s moved into the WH.

  43. FrankO

    Kels, You are right. There is a large number of IGNORANT Americans like you that came out of the woodwork and voted for a communist infiltrator. How much more IGNORANT can you get. Go back to watching MSNBC for all your news and facts while you drink Kool Aid you racist bigot.

  44. FrankO

    All you idiot Bush bashers want to tell me how much Presidential pay did George Bush take. How about a big fat Zero. Thats right ignoramuses. Zero. He waived it for the American people because he didn’t need it. I didn’t like Bush much but I despise Obummer and his Sheboon.

  45. Frosteetoes

    I’ve had my moment of Zen, zen. You’ll most likely be back here to read someone’s reaction to your post.

    All you dumb assholes who still support Obama and think he’s the best thing since Cheeze Whiz are not only mentally retarded but you have endangered this country by your vote and continued support. While you jump on the Obama bandwagon of trying to stop Arizona of it’s Constitutional right to make laws that apply to the welfare of their state and making this yet another race issue, jihadi’s are slipping thru the borders assimilating with the poor downtrodden illegals to get here.

    You stupid fucking liberal progressives have your heads up your asses.
