Kellyanne Conway Nailed for Violating the Hatch Act - Twice

News & Politics

The Office of Special Counsel found that senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway violated the Hatch Act twice when she appeared in two separate interviews.


While discussing Ivanka Trump’s brand, Conway made a direct plea to the Fox News audience to buy Trump’s products. The second instance was when Conway advocated for Senate candidate Doug Jones to be defeated and advocated the election of another candidate.

Both moves are explicitly banned by the Hatch Act. According to the special counsel, its office “submitted the report to the President for appropriate disciplinary action.”
