Betsy DeVos, Under Investigation By Independent Counsel Based On Commentary Made on Fox Network

She’s one of the worst, possible. This story is reported by Politico.

The Office of the Special Counsel has started investigating Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for potentially violating the Hatch Act, after she slammed Joe Biden in a Fox News interview and her agency promoted it through official channels.

DeVos would become one of the most high-profile Trump officials known to have been investigated for violating the Hatch Act. Depending on what OSC finds, she would be the second member of the Trump Cabinet to be found to have violated the law.

Hatch Act of 1939  prohibits civil service employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president and vice president from engaging in some forms of political activity. It became law on August 2, 1939.
