January 1, White House Press Secretary Accused of Violating Federal Law



Humanity’s reach into the cosmos took a revolutionary leap as… READ MORE ABOUT THIS HISTORIC DAY HERE

Politics is a game of chess, not checkers. And in this game, it seems like some pieces are more immune to being checked than others. A case in point is White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s recent violation of the Hatch Act.

For those unfamiliar with this regulation, it’s a law designed to keep federal employees from using their official positions to influence elections.

The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) found that Jean-Pierre broke this very rule when she frequently referenced “mega MAGA Republicans” in the run-up to the 2022 midterms.

The plot thickens when we learn that despite this violation, the OSC chose to send her a warning letter instead of taking disciplinary action. A fascinating maneuver, considering how easily past administrations have been pilloried for Hatch Act violations.

Jean-Pierre’s defense? She and the White House counsel’s office didn’t believe her remarks were prohibited. Sounds like a convenient case of selective understanding of the rules to me. And their response after the OSC’s finding? To paraphrase, they’re “reviewing the opinion.” That’s like a football team reviewing the rulebook after a player’s been red-carded.

Michael Chamberlain, former Trump administration official and head of Protect the Public’s Trust, hit the nail on the head when he noted how such incidents contribute to the growing distrust of the Biden administration. After all, aren’t they the ones who promised to uphold the highest ethical standards?

Let’s get something straight. It’s not about who broke the rules more or who used the ‘MAGA’ acronym in an official capacity. This issue is about consistency, accountability, and the preservation of our democracy’s integrity. We can’t turn a blind eye to one administration’s indiscretions while crucifying another for the same.

To date, the Hatch Act has ensnared both the current Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra and Biden’s then Chief of Staff, Ron Klain. Jean-Pierre herself has hidden behind it to dodge tricky questions about potential 2024 rivals. Yet, when it comes to her own actions, it seems the Hatch Act’s rules become blurred.

In the end, it boils down to this – there’s no room for bias in law enforcement. We need to ensure the rules are applied equally, regardless of party affiliation or position. It’s high time Washington realized that in this game of political chess, the rules should be the same for all the pieces on the board.

      That useless beatch can’t even spell Republican, much less be one.

    Sadly, only republicans pay a price for breaking the law

    All together, ‘Rules for thee, not for me!’

    Question? Would you verbally Warn a Pit bull that’s Snarling and baring its teeth? No? Then Why send Letters of Warning to People that Don’t Know, Care, or Abide by any Laws in the off chance that they might actually read the Letter and react to it?
