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.
When discussing Ivanka Trump’s brand, Conway made a direct plea to the Fox News audience to buy Trump’s products. The second case was when she advocated for Alabama senate candidate Doug Jones to be defeated and advocated the election of Roy Moore.
Both are explicitly banned by the Hatch Act. According to the special counsel, their office “submitted the report to the President for appropriate disciplinary action.”
