Office Of Special Counsel: Kellyanne Conway Should Be Fired For Her Repeated Violations Of The Hatch Act

The Washington Post reports:

The Office of Special Counsel has recommended the removal of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway from federal office for violating the Hatch Act, which bars federal employees from engaging in political activity in the course of their work.

The report submitted to President Trump found that Conway violated the Hatch Act on numerous occasions by “disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.”

The counsel said Conway was a repeat offender and recommended that she be removed from federal office. The White House responded by arguing that the special counsel’s actions against Conway “are deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process.”
