Flashback: Obama Sent Three Representatives to Michael Brown Funeral

President Obama’s White House will be spending much of the day responding to criticism that he did not send a representative from America to attend the historic peace and unity rally in Paris this weekend. As the decision-making process is scrutinized and the White House excuses are presented, it should be instructive to remember that the President insisted on sending three officials to Ferguson, MO to attend the funeral for Michael Brown.

CNS News reported on the funeral last August:

These, according to the Associated Press, included Broderick Johnson, chairman of the White House’s My Brother’s Keeper Task Force; Marlon Marshall, the deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, who went to high school with Brown’s mother; and Heather Foster, who is an adviser to the Office of Public Engagement.
