ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A senior adviser to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton says she’s leaving his administration to take an assignment within the White House.

Deputy Chief of Staff Andrea Mokros said Wednesday she will head to Washington to be a high-level aide to First Lady Michelle Obama. Mokros has led Dayton’s communications department during his first six months in office.

Her announcement comes on the day Minnesota’s government shutdown and overtime session ended.

      President Obama’s wife Michelle will need the extra help when Barack and Democrats lead the nation for four more years out of the Republican caused depression that has put a strangle hold on our nation. Peace out, a-hole……..

    Why does the pricess Michelle need yet another aide? Let me guess…. she will be in charge of washing Michelle’s back in the shower.
