Well, well, well, look who just entered the spotlight to pay the price for her bias TV appearances. At the front end of Trump’s presidency, Kellyanne Conway was a staple on TV, pushing the Trump agenda to the masses primarily via Fox News. After her many blunders, including “alternative facts” and Ivanka’s free commercial, the Trump administration thought better of it, and now only dispatches her during its most desperate times.
However, Conway could be on her way out the door. The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) just charged Conway with two violations of the Hatch Act, which prohibits government officials from endorsing and advocating against political candidates.
The OSC demands “appropriate disciplinary action” for Conway. According to the violations, Conway violated the Hatch Act during an appearance on Fox & Friends and again on CNN’s New Day.
The OSC report states, “While the Hatch Act allows federal employees to express their views about candidates and political issues as private citizens, it restricts employees from using their official government positions for partisan political purposes, including by trying to influence partisan elections.”

On Fox & Friends, Conway urged, “Doug Jones in Alabama, folks, don’t be fooled. He’ll be a vote against tax cuts. He’s weak on crime, weak on borders. He’s strong on raising your taxes. He’s terrible for property owners. And Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal which is why he’s not saying anything and the media are trying to boost him.”
The White House responded in the following statement:
