White House Easter Bunny

WASHINGTON – First the White House tours, now the Easter Bunny could be axed because of lack of government funding.

A White House official told CNN that they have alerted all Easter egg roll ticket holders that “the event is subject to cancelation due to funding uncertainty, including the possibility of a government shutdown.”

Whitehouse.gov still has the event listed for April 1.

A partial government shutdown would occur if congress fails to extend funding authorization by the March 27 deadline.
