Hidden Costs of Michele Obama's Spanish Vacation

Just exactly what did taxpayers spend to send Michelle Obama on vacation to Spain in 2010?

That’s the question that is at the heart of a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington against the United States Air Force.

The action has been brought by Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption.

The legal action was launched after a Freedom of Information Act request was filed for the answer and the government did not respond.

The action seeks to find out what the costs for the trip and whether there was “any indication of official business conducted by Mrs. Obama while she was in the country.”
