Kellyanne Conway has finally responded to a recommendation that she be removed for partisan activity while employed at the White House – a clear violation of the Hatch Act forbidding such behavior.
“You know I’m never going to get fired for this, don’t you? In fact my job security has just gone up!”
However Conway said she wanted to make a gesture to those upset by her actions and the Federal Watchdog agency that recommended her removal.
“From now on I promise to limit my Hatch Act violations to six days a week – unless I think of something really good of course!”
Conway said that day wouldn’t be Sunday, as that is her favorite day for launching partisan attacks on the morning political shows.
“They were practically born for Hatch Act violations.”
But she insists that hump day (Wednesday) will be violation free from now on, as she like to take care of personal business then anyway.
On October 6, 1993, former President Clinton signed the Hatch Act Reform Amendments (P.L. 103-94) modifying the 1939 law to allow federal workers to participate in partisan political activities during off-duty hours. … These reforms allow federal employees to participate in political activity.
I believe the inspector is wrong – because all of the the people running for president are also active or past elected officials. For example, when is senator warren speaking as a senator and when is she speaking as presidential candidate? How could Kelly Ann know? She is allowed to respond to comments from senators.
Hatch Act:The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law whose main provision prohibits employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials, from engaging in some forms of political activity. It went into law on August 2, 1939. The law was named for Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico. It was most recently amended in 2012. Pernicious- having a harmful effect, especially in a gradual or subtle way. Uh can we please take a look at Obama, Clinton(both of them) runned by George Soros???
