Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 24, 2017

A prominent government ethics expert has filed a complaint against White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, alleging that she violated federal law Monday by appearing to oppose Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's Democratic opponent. Walter Shaub, who resigned in July as the head of the Office of Government Ethics, said on Twitter on Wednesday that he lodged a complaint claiming that the top aide to President Donald Trump ran afoul of the Hatch Act when she discouraged Alabamans from voting for the Democratic nominee, Doug Jones.

In February, Conway broke federal law by telling people on Fox News to buy Ivanka Trump's fashion products, the Washington Post reported: "Her promotion of the fashion line appeared to violate an ethics rule barring federal employees from using their public office to endorse products and immediately drew criticism from both Democrats and Republicans."

She'd probably just end up alive and naked like Daenerys Targaryen.

No one is ready for that image.

You all do realize that only the President can impose punishment for Hatch Act violations, right?

Odds of that happening are lower than those of Obama punishing Castro last year.

#7 the base doesn't demand ethical behavior so the GOP doesn't even bother with the usual facade anymore.

Kellyanne routinely violates a lot of things.... like my eyeballs, my ears, common sense and reason to name a few.
