A federal agency recommended counselor Kellyanne Conway be fired for repeatedly violating the Hatch Act, but didn’t offer similar guidance for Obama-era officials cited for Hatch Act rule-breaking.
The Office of the Special Counsel, headed by Henry Kerner, said last week Conway had repeatedly violated the federal law during official media appearances through her endorsements of President Trump’s reelection and attacks on Democrats and recommended she be removed as counselor.
The article goes on to state the following:
But that investigative body didn’t make similar recommendations when two Obama Cabinet officials — Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro — violated the same law, and then-President Barack Obama never fired nor disciplined the top officials for the one-time judgments.
The inconsistently enforced 1939 law precludes most executive branch federal workers aside from the president and vice president from engaging in electioneering and political activity.
When faced with Sebelius and Castro violating the Hatch Act, Obama fired neither official, and his administration defended them.

.@KellyannePolls has been accused by a federal agency of violating the Hatch Act, which recommended she be fired.
The same agency didn’t hold two Obama-era officials to the same standard for similar violations. https://t.co/VZTsLmK4iq
