A Trump appointee displayed a “Make America Great Again” hat at her Housing and Urban Development office.

A top official at the Office of Management and Budget used his official Twitter account to promote President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan.
And White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway delivered a scathing and unprompted attack on Trump’s potential opponent, Joe Biden, during a TV interview
.
Those three instances — all in the last few months — are just a few of the growing number of complaints since Trump took office that federal employees are using their platform to campaign for the president or his allies, a violation of the Hatch Act. In Trump’s first year on the job, formal complaints to the government office that oversees compliance with the 80-year-old law jumped nearly 30 percent.

Yeah a couple of things here.

The hatch act makes an exception for designated employees.

It also only applies to those who have the power to expend federal funds.

It says nothing about voicing your support for a candidate.

Nice try but epic fail.

More Fake News from the left.
