The ghost of Lincoln has not been seen since shortly after the inauguration

White House staffers claim that the legendary ghost of Abraham Lincoln, which has haunted the White House since Lincoln's death in 1865, fled when he saw a black man sleeping in his bed.

For over 140 years White House guests have reported seeing a tall bearded man in a Stovepipe Hat wandering all throughout the presidential bedrooms and even into the Oval Office. However, since Obama's inauguration, not a single visitor has commented on the ghostly apparition.

Psychic/medium Cecelia Johnson was called in to investigate the spirit's disappearance. "He said he wanted to free the slaves", Johnson claimed. "Not put them in the White House!"

Johnson claimed Lincoln was "totally freaked out" when he saw Barack and Michelle Obama sleeping in the presidential bed. He then packed up his few belongings and went home saying, "this country doesn't stand a chance anymore".

No sooner did Lincoln depart the White House did the ghost of Martin Luther King enter.

"Looks like I finally got an invitation", King allegedly stated through a psychic.
