Federal Agency Recommends Kellyanne Conway Be Fired
WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal watchdog agency is recommending that White House counselor Kellyanne Conway be fired for repeatedly violating a law that limits certain political activities of federal employees.
The U.S. Office of Special Counsel says Conway has become a “repeat offender” of the Hatch Act by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.
A White House spokesman calls the Office of Special Counsel’s actions “deeply flawed.”
The office is unrelated to special counsel Robert Mueller’s office.
Career government officials found to have violated the Hatch Act can be fired, suspended or demoted, and fined up to $1,000.
Conway has been an unwavering defender of President Donald Trump on cable news. Trump has praised her for her “success” in her career.
