So Kellyanne Conway has been found guilty of violating the Hatch Act
http://fortune.com/2019/06/13/kellyanne-conway-hatch-act/

A Federal Agency Just Recommended Kellyanne Conway Be Fired.
A federal watchdog agency recommended Thursday that President Donald Trump fire one of his most ardent defenders, counselor Kellyanne Conway, for repeatedly violating a law that limits political activity by government workers.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel, which is unrelated to special counsel Robert Mueller’s office, said in a letter to Trump that Conway has been a “repeat offender” of the Hatch Act by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are exempt from the Hatch Act, but there are no exceptions for White House employees.

Really? Found Guilty you say? Where and when was the trial?

3. Forgive my dumb question...

Isn’t the traditional action, when police/courts believe someone is a criminal, to obtain a warrant and arrest that person, rather than sending a LETTER to their employer kindly asking for the person to be fired?

5. There's no court or police involved, nor any finding of guilt. An administrative agency charged wth enforcing the Hatch Act has made a charge against her .Anything more is media click bait and pot stirring. That's not to say that the charge is untrue, of course.

4. I hate Kellyanne Conway but how does the hatch act make sense? You can't disparage political opponents while working in your job? Well, wouldn't trump be in violation of that, along with Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and any senator running for president, etc.? What am I not understanding? Asking for real cuz i am truly ignorant to the law even after reading it.

Hey, you ignorant retard, you and your "federal watchdog agency" can #SiO2 until you become glass.
Your only excuse for your ignorance is because you are plain stupid.  Too stupid to breathe yet you do.
