Feds Open Hatch Act Case Against Kellyanne Conway

The Hill reports:

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel is opening a case file to address allegations that White House counselor Kellyanne Conway violated federal law when she made comments about GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore’s Democratic challenger.

Walter Shaub, the former director of the Office of Government Ethics, filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel last week alleging that Conway violated the Hatch Act, a decades-old law prohibiting federal employees from using their offices to campaign for or against political candidates.

    About fucking time!

    I’ll be surprised if this actually goes anywhere though.

    • Frostbite

      Course not. Turnip will just pardon her.

      • Puck

        Or he will have the lady doing the investigation fired and threaten her replacement too.

  • David J

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer more attractive woman spokesperson for that guy in the White House and champion of Roy Moore’s underage debauchery.

  • Dreaming Vertebrate

    Lock her up!!

    I don’t know if an orange jumpsuit will quite go with that bleached hair of yours, but maybe you can pretend the shackles are the latest in costume jewelry.

    Upcoming news:
    Kellyanne Conway appointed to head U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

    • lattebud

      I think that position in lined up for Jared, as well as the Middle East Prace project.

  • Rex

    Good.

    When I woke up this morning, I was a Kinsey Three.

    After looking at that photo of Conway, I’m a Kinsey Thirty.

    • Tawreos

      After all this time she finally accomplished something, she will be so happy =)

    • FAEN

      I’ve always been a Kinsey Thirty lol.

      • another_steve

        I’m so gay that my cat sometimes confuses me with my biological sister, whom I closely resemble.

        • FAEN

          That’s pretty damn 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

          😉

    • Ernest Endevor

      Thirty? Have I been counting wrong? I thought it went to six? Could it be possible I’m not as gay as I thought I was? I mean, is that even possible?

      • ChrisMorley

        You’re fine.
        His Kushner Dungeon Derangement Syndrome is a little acute this morning.

        • Ernest Endevor

          Oh thank God, I thought it was me! And the hubby and I have just been watching a whole series of early Garland movies. I mean, what more can I do? For proof I offer the campest moment in the American cinema.

            Oh good lord! That looks like about half of my friends arriving for brunch on Sunday morning.

          • Jay Silversmith

            I know I always drag my fur down the stairs behind me when I go do brunch.

          • another_steve

            Thanks for that video clip, Ernest.

            That moment where she temporarily regains her composure and descends the steps just prior to passing out…classic.

          • Ernest Endevor

            It’s ridiculous, moving, swank as shit, done with great style, and she’s gorgeous. Plus there’s a staircase. Who could ask for anything more?

          • David Walker

            One of the Truly Great Moments in American Cinema. Thanks for the reminder.

        • another_steve

          You’re just jealous, Chris, because you Brit queers are losing your primary ginger sex fantasy to some American actress none of us here have ever heard of.

          Ivanka will eventually leave Jared. He’s becoming a drag on the sale of her designer colognes.

          Then I’ll dive down for the kill.

          • Jay Silversmith

            I hear her beaver shot sales are way down too.

          • ChrisMorley

            Steve, if you check I do believe
            1 Harry is staying here, where we can keep a close eye on him in Kensington Palace.
            2 His fiance is abandoning the US for the tRump-free zone that is Brexit Britain.

            As a Gesture of Goodwill, we have laid on a live webcam of Kensington High Street, so you might track his movements. http://www.mylivestreams.com/webcam/kensington-high-street-london-traffic-weather-jam-cam-london/12222.html

          • another_steve

            I recall Kensington High Street with considerable fondness.

            Great shopping. Yummy eateries.

      • another_steve

        When I went to bed last night, I was feeling butch.

        After seeing that photo of Kellyanne, this is me now:

          Who’s this Butch you’ve been feeling? Does your SO know about this?

          • Butch

            I must have been really sound asleep to miss that. Damn.

            Man was amorous last night.

            I’m a little fey wisp of a reed. Feeling a bit bruised this morning, actually.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            What did that brute do to you???

          • another_steve

            Can’t provide details, Joe.

      Huh, I would have thought you went from 6 to 60 a_s!

  • Tawreos

    Is there anyone associated with the administration that hasn’t broken the law or at least given the appearance of breaking the law?

  • glass
  • Bluto

    The regime will dissolve this office & no one will do anything. Problem solved.

  • Bambino

    What is the consequences? $50 fine pay with a pardon coupon?

    • ChrisMorley

      She might get sacked. That’s All.

        I’m sure she will appear on another position beside the dotard the next minute after her firing.

    Yeah, conjob, actions DO have consequences. About effing time, too.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Richard Painter has been after her for a long time regarding her violations starting with hocking Ivanka’s ugly knock offs.

  • FAEN

    All the zombies on ‘The Walking Dead’ look just like her.

        Yes, but we have to break your fingers first.

        • Ernest Endevor

          So long as it looks pretty that seems acceptable.

    Gee, I’m surprised that someone who was able to pass the DC bar so easily on her first try would make such a simple legal mistake. (I dedicate this sarcastic snark to Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose performance on the DC bar exam was maligned by Ms. Thang, here.)

  • Rocco

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer woman.

    Maybe Boo can be her cellmate.

    Twenty years at hard labor? Pretty please!!

    I smell a pardon in the air.

  • David Walker

    I really do like this Walter Shaub guy. He resigned as head ethics guy because of the blatantly unethical behavior of the fucking moron, and he (Shaub) is even more of a pain in the ass for BLOTUS. I admire Mr. Shaub greatly.

  • Learjet

    Great, but nothing will come of it. A complaint was filled when she was hocking Ivanka’s jewelry on Fox “News”, but nothing came of it. Never does.

  • Galvestonian

    She’ll get off, of course … unless Trumpizzi is impeached/convicted/jailed/up the river without a paddle/removed from office/incriminated/up shit creek/assed out of the White House/totally blown or clearly proven insane and incompetent.
    Pick one or all the above.

  • JaniceInToronto

    Nothing will happen. As usual.

    • Jeffg166

      IOKIYAR.

  • Joseph Miceli

    Kellyanne has nothing to worry about. All she has to do is say she didn’t violate the Hatch act. Since Kellyanne is the center of all things, defining reality by the words she says, reality itself (zitar music plays in background, psychedelic closeups of lava lamps) will alter and become whatever Kellyanne says it is at that moment.
    Groovy!

  • Treant

    I’ll so look forward to fair prosecution on that.

    The evidence is very compelling and nationally televised too. About time to start bringing Sewer-Rat Barbie to the gallows and the necklace she deserves. Fascist traitor and treasonous lying fool are too kind for this delusional lying piece of work. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4353c9f827788ff790bd9b5302e997cb1b94228847c0ba90391b01f66d8300f0.png
