Posted on 09/13/2012 9:52:43 AM PDT by chessplayer
The U.S. Office of Special Counsel informed President Obama yesterday that it found his controversial Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius violated the federal Hatch Act back in February. ABC News's Jake Tapper noted the finding in a September 12 Political Punch blog post at ABCNews.com, but World News editors apparently thought the matter unworthy of coverage last night. The story was also unreported on NBC's Nightly News and CBS's Evening News.
Jake is looking for a front row seat when Romney wins.
“We covered on our blog, so we don’t have to mention it to the sheeple in our evening newscast!” - ABC News
Remember when officials actually had to RESIGN over this kind of crap?
That ONLY applies to Republicans now...
I am shocked that Kathleen “BARACK CHALK JAYHAWK” Sebelius would violate the law.....again:
I heard she wasn’t in the room when the politicking happened. She had been drinking a lot of Iced Tea......
does anyone think Sebelius will be charged, arrested, tried and sent to jail?
This is a much bigger thing than Todd Akin.
What’s Mr. Obama going to do about this? Steal her birthday?
Holder is jumping right on that. As soon as he gets done prosecuting the White House staff for all the National Security leaks that probably led to the killing of 25 Navy Seal in Afghanistan: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/08/06/afghan-president-31-americans-killed-in-helicopter-crash/
(Do I really need Sarc tag?)
This was covered in WSJ: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390443696604577647952738407544.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
When I first read it, I assume they must be talking about Sebelius’ DNC speech. Then I saw that it referred to a February event. Call me stupid, but I see no distinction between the two. If “improper partisan activity” is supposed to be kept out of the federal workplace, then how the hell can it be OK for her to show up at a political convention cheering on her president?
Sadly, the “punishment” appears to be a slap on the wrist. The DNC has reimbursed Treasury for the $2515 cost of her trip and Sebelius has met with “ethics experts to ensure this never happens again.” She allegedly went “off script” in her remarks. Does it make anyone feel better to know that she is quoted as saying “I regret that it occurred”? What a joke.
So, NOTHING will happen, Holder will not lift a finger, move along, nothing to see here. You have no standing.
And stop acting like it does!
Do you think a single prominent democrat will even suggest an investigation?
nope. I doubt very many elected Republicans will to tell the truth.
Hey Jakester.....put it on the NEWS, not your little blog.....geesh.
This white RAT is the Joseph Mengele of the Communist RAT party. This is the special RAT tasked with the killing our parents and grandparents via of the death panels. Of course, no action will be taken.
