Elizabeth Lauten, the congressional spokeswoman who resigned Monday after being ground up in Washington's latest political scandal, is a North Carolina product.
Lauten is a 2007 graduate of East Carolina University. She went to high school in Jacksonville.
Lauten was communications director for U.S. Rep. Steve Fincher, a Republican from Tennessee. On Friday, she posted on Facebook criticism of President Barack Obama's daughters, Sasha and Malia, for their behavior while appearing with their father on Wednesday at the annual turkey pardoning.
