It is Schiltz not Schlitz… she is not an heir to the beer empire though I bet she wishes she were. Whether she’s from “old money” or not she’s a fresh face who is in touch with her community and how they would like to be represented. Go Michelle!

We here at Sumner Newscow have a motto. “We guarantee 100 percent accuracy unless we are mistaken.” Report Reply +3 Vote up Vote down Jeff McGuire · 219 weeks ago It seems like there was an article in the Wall Street Journal a few years back about her changing the spelling of her name to remain anonomous and avoid the hordes of people wanting her to donate to various charities. Alot of people don’t know it but she funnels millions to charities in complete anonymity. She is a very generous person. Report Reply Post a new comment Enter text right here!
