Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A federal watchdog agency Thursday recommended firing senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway for violating the law by making partisan public statements in her official capacity. Investigators in the Office of Special Counsel found that Conway repeatedly violated the Hatch Act, a 1939 law that prohibits federal employees from influencing elections. The OSC cited Conway's comments about Democratic presidential candidates and remarks she made during the 2017 Alabama special election. "Given that Ms. Conway is a repeat offender and has shown disregard for the law, OSC recommends that she be removed from federal service," reads the office's statement. The watchdog agency cannot bring criminal charges but can recommend firing or a reprimand by the president. According to The Hill, the OSC has never before recommended firing a White House official over Hatch Act violations.
