Fox News: Watchdog Recommends Firing Kellyanne Conway Firing For Violating Hatch Act

‘It’s an independent federal investigative agency that has nothing to do with Robert Mueller’s office that investigated Russian election interference’


EDSON: "Right. It says that she violated the Hatch Act. This is a federal law that prohibits federal employees from, while they're at work, engaging in election politics. It's said that Kellyanne Conway did just that when essentially she was commenting in her official job on Democrats who are running for their party’s nomination for president. This is from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel. It’s an independent federal investigative agency, has absolutely nothing to do with the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office that investigated Russian election interference. That office says 'Ms. Conway’s violations, if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act's restrictions. Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system — the rule of law.' The White House response, they say that that analysis is deeply flawed and violates her constitutional rights to free speech and due process.”
