Watch: Kellyanne Conway Caught Breaking Federal Law Again Today — Second Time This Week
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was busted for breaking federal law — at least twice so far this week — and MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell has the evidence on video — See below.
“Kellyanne Conway is going to need a lawyer. I hope she knows a good one because Kellyanne Conway broke the law again today,” O’Donnell said.
He played a clip of Conway saying, “while I’m on the subject of [Joe] Biden.”
“It’s against the law for her to be on the subject of Biden,” O’Donnell noted. “She said that yesterday in the White House driveway to a group of reporters as she was illegally campaigning against Joe Biden for Donald Trump while holding her position on the federal payroll.”
“Kellyanne Conway did the same thing again today in the White House driveway,” he continued.
“She violated the Hatch Act. The Hatch Act says that a federal government employee — including the White House staff — ‘may not use his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election.’ In other words, they cannot participate in campaigning,” he explained.
“Another provision of the Hatch Act prohibits campaigning at federal buildings, which the White House most certainly is,” he noted.
“So Kellyanne Conway violated two sections of the Hatch Act — two days in a row — standing in the White House driveway campaigning against Joe Biden,” O’Donnell concluded.
