Special counsel tells Trump to fire Kellyanne Conway over Hatch Act violations

The government’s chief political watchdog said Thursday that White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has “repeatedly” broken the Hatch Act by mixing politics with official government business, and told President Trump to fire her. Special Counsel Henry J. Kerner, who polices federal employees’ politicking, said Mrs. Conway’s “disregard” for the law is palpable and wouldn’t be tolerated in any regular federal employee. But since Mrs. Conway is a presidential appointee at the White House, it’s up to him to discipline her


What was her snarky little answer? " Let me know when the jail time begins."

Everyone in the administration has the same disregard for federal laws.
Its a free for all.

Edited to add source

“Never has OSC had to issue multiple reports to the president concerning Hatch Act violations by the same individual,” he wrote. “OSC respectfully requests that Mrs. Conway be held to the same standards as all other federal employees and, as such, you find removal from federal service to be the appropriate disciplinary action.”

Just curious, but what is your opinion on John Kerry and his clear disregard when speaking with Iran on American policy? You are aware he is not even apart of our government in any capacity?

The Hatch Act The Hatch Act restricts federal employee participation in certain partisan political activities. The political activity restrictions apply during the entire time of an employee’s federal service. Certain rules prohibit both on-duty and off-duty conduct. Partisan political activities are those activities directed at the success or failure of a political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group. While most Federal employees are permitted to take an active part in partisan political management and partisan political campaigns, the Hatch Act does prohibit certain participation by all Federal employees. Federal employees may not seek public office in partisan elections, use their official title or authority when engaging in political activity, solicit or receive contributions for partisan political candidates or groups, and engage in political activity while on duty.

Penalties Removal is the only penalty authorized for violation of the Hatch Act, under 5 U.S.C.S. § 1505. The Merit System Protection Board (MSPB) has plenary jurisdiction under § 1505 to determine after a hearing whether the violation warrants the removal of the officer or employee from his office or employment. The Board considers whether removal is appropriate on the basis of seriousness of the violation. The Board takes into account all relevant mitigating and aggravating factors, including: (1) the nature of the offense and the extent of the employee’s participation; (2) the employee’s motive and intent; (3) whether the employee received the advice of counsel regarding the activities at issue; (4) whether the employee ceased the activities at issue; (5) the employee’s past employment record; and (6) the political coloring of the employee’s activiti

So much for the "Law and Order" president. This administration has little to no regard for the law.

Democrats raised this stink.

The special counsel is merely responding to it as he should.

She certainly did violate the Hatch act on multiple occasions. She should still tell them to go F themselves.

That guy recommended the same thing two years ago. His recommendation was ignored then, it will be ignored now, and it will be ignored if he makes the recommendation for a third time.

Well when the boss gets on TV and tells them that its okay to break federal laws if it helps get you elected what do you expect?
They only follow the example set by the head.

There are people who have not been alive long enough to understand how the world really operates.

Within the next 30 days Democrats will experience firsthand the punishment for being a hateful minority with no power.

What about Kellyanne and her smart ass reply about a jail term?
Obviously she knows the only punishment for violating this law is removal from her position.
If you believe Michael Wolfs new book, she and her husband hate trump. She may be looking for a way out of the rabbit hole she's been stuck down for the past couple of years.

"White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has “repeatedly” broken the Hatch Act by mixing politics with official government business, and told President Trump to fire her."

That's rich... If this was an offense to fire someone over, no democrats would be left in office. Man, democrats and their blatant hypocrisy never cease to amaze me. It's put out there hourly for the whole world to see.
