Marian Robinson, Barack Obama’s mother-in-law, and Michelle Obama’s mother, has been arrested in Chicago for drugs and running a house of prostitution. The arrest came during a sting at an address that has been the source of complaints for years, local affiliates say.
The arrest couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Obama family, as former President Obama was just about to give his endorsement to the Democratic nominee for president. Obama’s PR reps have tried to keep it quiet, but in Chicago, there are very few secrets.
Ms. Robinson, 75, who was arrested in the seedy Edison Park neighborhood of Chicago, was charged with running a house of prostitution, prostitution, possession of a controlled substance and possession with an intent to deliver, as well as being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Detective Joseph Barron of the Chicago PD laid out the charges for us. She was not only running this house of prostitution but also a lady of the night herself, describing her as a “specialty act” for men who are into adult entertainment of the granny variety. We thought that was weird, too.
When arrested she had just finished up with a customer and when police broke down the door, she was wearing nothing but a g-string and tassels and the room was a cloud of marijuana smoke while Barry White was playing on a radio near the bed, as a 45-year-old man simply named Don Jr. sat smiling, repeating he hated his father and his first time was amazing.
During the raid, drugs and other contraband were seized. There were also several pictures of Ernest Borgnine in comprising poses hung on the walls. Additionally, 15 women were arrested as well, all in various states of undress, the oldest being 98. Police were shocked and taken aback by everything they had witnessed. This is a developing story.
