This Ultra-Famous Former Olympian Is Now Working for Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton is receiving her fair share of high-profile support (Elizabeth Banks, Chloe Grace Moretz and Katy Perry, just to name a few) during her history-making run for president. Now, as the campaign keeps rolling and the elections creep ever-closer, another very recognizable celeb has joined Hillary’s team. This time around, it’s an Olympian who’s not just singing Hillary’s praises; she’s actually hands-deep in the work. That’s right, the next time you’re talking to someone on Hill’s staff, you might just be chatting with former Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan.

A nine-time US skating champion, five-time world champion and two-time Olympic medalist, 36-year-old Michelle is now more focused on politics than landing a triple axel. As a Surrogate Outreach Coordinator working in Clinton’s Brooklyn HQ, according to New York Magazine, Kwan spends her time connecting with “high profile donors,” a.k.a. celebs, by searching social media and reaching out to anyone who’s showed support for Hillary.

Posting a pic of herself with a full-size Hillary cut-out to Twitter, Michelle added the caption, “#ImWithHer,” and from the looks of her Twitter stream, she’s standing behind her word…

…while dismissing the haters…

And then there’s just this cuteness (because PUPPY!)…
