A news blurb in the local paper Washington Post article

"Reporters and photographers were evacuated briefly from the West Wing of the White House early Saturday because of smoke from an overheated transformer in a mechanical room."

"at about 7 a.m., smoke was seen coming from a mechanical room closet on the first floor."

I wonder if Michelle caught him in there? It's a filthy habit but I've never seen anyone blame a transformer!
