LINDSAY LOHAN’s father MICHAEL has come to his daughter’s defense after U.S.
presidential candidate BARACK OBAMA reportedly rejected the actress’ offer to help raise funds for his race to the White House.
The Mean Girls star allegedly offered to host a fundraiser to rally support for his candidacy among young voters.
The offer was reportedly snubbed because of Lohan’s wild past – she is a reformed drug and alcohol addict who spent several sessions in rehab last year (08).
Obama’s Democrat camp are said to have refused to invite Lohan to campaign for them because she “is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us”.
But Lohan’s dad Michael, who has a turbulent relationship with his famous daughter, has hit out at Obama’s people, insisting the actress will turn her life around like former Hollywood hellraiser Angelina Jolie.
He tells TMZ.com, “Everyone is entitled to an opinion and so is Obama and his staff. Then again, you know what they say about opinions.
“Unfortunately, for them, to make such a comment about my daughter was a big mistake… Look at Angelina Jolie and the wonderful things she has done in her life, and now watch how Lindsay does the same.”
