MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner has apologized to first lady Michelle Obama for reportedly saying she has a "big butt."

Sensenbrenner's press secretary says the Republican sent the first lady a personal note and released a statement Thursday saying he regrets his "inappropriate comment."

Sensenbrenner's office would not release the note.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Sensenbrenner referred to Michelle Obama's "big butt" while talking to church members at a Christmas bazaar at St. Aidan's Episcopal Church in Hartford earlier this month.

Church member Ann Marsh-Meigs told the newspaper that she heard Sensenbrenner's remarks. She said the 16-term congressman was speaking about the first lady's efforts to combat childhood obesity, and added, "And look at her big butt."

Michelle Obama's press office didn't immediately return a request for comment Thursday.

  1. Has the Wisconsin Congressman, Jim Sensenbrenner, taken a look in the mirror or measured his voluptuous backside that resembles Porky Pig's to me? Perhaps if the Congressman would take heed to our esteemed First Lady's healthy philosophy he would do more push-aways from the table, lower his waistline, and stop looking like a poster-child for diabetes, high blood pressure, clogged arteries, and the things that are driving up are health care costs!
