White House indicates Sebelius won't be punished over Hatch Act violation
fox news ^ | 9/13/2012 | staff

Posted on 09/13/2012 7:23:54 PM PDT by tobyhill

The White House indicated that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would probably not be punished, after federal investigators determined she had violated the law when she campaigned earlier this year for President Obama.

Sebelius broke the law by making "extemporaneous partisan remarks" during a speech in February at a Human Rights Campaign Event in Charlotte, N.C., according to the Office of Special Counsel (OSC). She made the comments in the city that would later host the Democratic National Convention.

White House spokesman Eric Schultz explained in a statement that the administration has already taken action on the matter, though, putting Sebelius through training and making sure taxpayers were reimbursed.

Do you notice that no one bets on anything to do with this administration because we all know the outcome.

Those punishments are reserved for the “lower ranks” of the government work staff.

No really? Why, I thought they were so transparent and honorable.

Everyone attached to the administration and the Democrat party are unmitigated scum.

Of course laws don’t apply to her, silly. She has a “D” after her name.

Oh, be real...this was a "gimmee" from the outset...from the moment it was reported. No MSM is going to report it, follow it, see it to the end.

The world is on fire and for 5 years we cannot get the media to report on the SDS, ACORN, communist, Dreams From My Father, Reverend Wright background of the purple lipped prince....

If this had been a Republican all the news would have been dominated by it, with screaming talking head leftists calling for heads to roll and Congressional hearings. The perp would be forced to resign from the controversy.
...

What is Bohner doing anyway? Is he calling for hearings on this?

Just like the New Black Panthers, who were doing stuff for Obama at that polling place, weren't prosecuted by Obama's Just- Us Department.

Hatch Act. Hah. More like Escape Hatch Act for this administration. Elena Kagan didn't even recuse herself in the Obamacare case and she was heavily involved with it as Obama's Solicitor General. Then there's Eric Holder. Laws? What do they matter?

WHERE ARE YOU, SPEAKER BOEHNER? OFF POLISHING OBAMA'S GOLF BALLS?

Al Gore did tell us there was "no controlling legal authority" when he was accused of violating campaign laws by fundraising from the White House.

I guess it's true!

Why would there be hearings? Why would that be HIS job as Speaker? Do you know anything about how things work? Have you spent even 30 seconds looking into this case and what has occurred? Who investigated, what the law says is to be done? Any of that?

No, of course not. All you want to do is ATTACK Boehner (Learn to spell it!) like you ATTACK Romney and attack the rest!

“White House spokesman Eric Schultz explained in a statement that the administration has already taken action on the matter, though, putting Sebelius through training and making sure taxpayers were reimbursed.”

Let me guess. The taxpayers were reimbursed from another pot of taxpayer monies? The left uses their own money for nothing. I’d like to see a copy of that check that came from the personal account of sebelius.

What is Bohner doing anyway?

"The situation is so delicate for Boehner that he’s meeting with Sessions on Friday to discuss the Texan’s future,"

Will Boehner mess with Texas?
