The special counsel’s office on Thursday recommended that President trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway be booted from the federal workforce for repeated violations of the Hatch Act.
Conway, the office said in a statement, “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 office then said that Conway should be shown the door.
“Given that Ms. Conway is a repeat offender and has shown disregard for the law, OSC recommends that she be removed from federal service.”
Conway has scoffed at charges that she violated the Hatch Act, which bars some executive branch staffers from engaging in partisan political activity.
