White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway Repeatedly Violated The Hatch Act
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
A federal watchdog agency says Kellyanne Conway should be fired for repeatedly violating the Hatch Act. The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) said Conway is a “repeat offender” of the Hatch Act. Since Kellyanne Conway was appointed by President Trump, it would be up to the president to follow the OSC’s recommendation. Career government officials who have violated the Hatch Act can be fired, suspended, or demoted, and fined up to $1,000.
For more on Hatch Act, please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law whose main provision prohibits employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials, from engaging in some forms of political activity. It went into law on August 2, 1939. The law was named for Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico. It was most recently amended in 2012.
- In June 2019, the OSC sent a letter to President Trump recommending that White House counselor Kellyanne Conway be removed from federal service for repeatedly violating the Hatch Act. This report follows the March 2018 OSC finding that Conway was a “repeat offender” for disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while in her official capacity during televised interviews and on social media.
The federal watchdog sent a report to Trump on Thursday detailing Conway’s ‘numerous’ violations, in the video “Hatch Act Violations and Kellyanne Conway“, below:
The Office of Special Counsel says White House aide Kellyanne Conway violated the Hatch Act by taking sides in the Alabama Senate race during two television appearances. NBC’s Kristen Welker reviews the interviews in question and reports on the White House’s response, in the video “Federal Watchdog Finds White House Aide Kellyanne Conway In Violation Of Hatch Act, MSNBC“, below:

There appears to be a pattern: At best, good percentage of those working under Trump Administration do not know right from wrong or do not know the law clearly enough to conduct their official duties. At worst, those working under Trump Administration feel as though they are above the law (they do not care about the law).
