Six top Trump aides found to violate Hatch Act

Alternet -Six Trump administration officials violated the Hatch Act, a law that prevents federal government employees from engaging in political activities as a part of their official duties, a new letter from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (unrelated to Special Counsel Robert Mueller) revealed.

The complaints against these employees were brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group. The Hatch Act prevents elected officials from using the power of the government to support their re-election — key projection against the entrenchment of power in the United States.

Intersting article in the paper today pointing out that the rich think it is okay to break all the rules, and Trumpies are even more greed heads and law breakers.
