A few moments ago, during the Ft. Myers, Florida town hall meeting, President Obama called on a woman who was fighting back tears.
“I’m grateful for you, and I’ve been praying for you,” she said, pausing to collect herself. “I have an urgent need.”
The woman, who identified herself as Henrietta Hughes, said she was unemployed and homeless, and living with her family in a very small vehicle. “The Housing Authority has two years waiting list. We need something more than a vehicle and parks to go to. We need our own kitchen and our own bathroom.”
She pleaded, “Please help.”
President Obama walked over to her, and said, “We’re going to do everything we can to help you. I’ll have my staff talk to you after the town hall.”
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has video. And Hughes has been offered a home by a representative from Florida.
