The marketing firm that created first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” anti-obesity campaign’s logo, slogan and web design has close ties to the Obama administration and was paid $100,000 in an “unauthorized” no-bid contract, according to internal documents.
The 44 pages of documents — obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) request by the conservative government accountability group Judicial Watch — reveal that federal officials are looking into the Let’s Move contract with Shepardson, Stern & Kaminsky (SS+K) as an “unauthorized commitment.”
According to Judicial Watch, the contract violated federal contracting laws.
