Office of Special Counsel: Kellyanne Conway violated Hatch Act

In a new report, the OSC special counsel, Henry Kerner, pointed to Conway’s TV interviews conducted in her “official capacity” in November and December of last year. The agency said Conway “impermissibly mixed official government business with political views about candidates in the Alabama special election.”

One of the two interviews was on CNN’s “New Day,” and the second was on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”

In a letter to President Donald Trump, Kerner said he is referring her violations for the President’s “consideration of appropriate disciplinary action.”
