First lady Michelle Obama's office announced Tuesday that her Chief of Staff Susan Sher will leave the White House and return to Chicago after the first of the year.
The House ethics committee says it will comply with a Justice Department request to take no action in an investigation of Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr., Illinois Democrat.
Michelle Obama is jumping into the midterm political fray in a big way: She will headline at least nine fundraisers in six states next month for the Democrats.
She's not a political animal, Michelle Obama is the first to admit.
"From the beginning, she's wanted to hit the campaign trail," said Susan Sher, chief of staff to the first lady. "It was just a matter of figuring out what would work with her schedule and what would be most useful."
"I expect to get some direction from the political team in the coming weeks about the larger strategy and from there we will be able to make some informed decisions about how she can be most helpful," said Susan Sher, the first lady's chief of staff.
