Trump Official “Doesn’t Care” About Breaking Law

The Huffington Post reports:

Lynne Patton, a regional administrator for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, wrote last week that she may have broken a federal law meant to prevent officials from politicizing their government positions, but said that even if that were the case, she “honestly” didn’t care.

“Just retweeted this amazing tweet from both of my Twitter accounts — professional and personal,” Patton wrote on Facebook last week, pointing to a message that championed her boss, HUD Secretary Ben Carson, but was critical of AOC.  “It may be a Hatch Act violation. It may not be. Either way. I honestly don’t care anymore.”

When someone pointed out her potential lawbreaking, Patton doubled down on Sunday evening, mocking those critical of her as “lazy internet parrots” and “liberal snowflakes” on her personal Twitter account.

Patton last made headlines when she was trotted out during a US House hearing as evidence that Trump isn’t racist. She has also mocked death threats against Rep. Ilhan Omar and called reporter April Ryan “Miss Piggy.”
