Two Veterans Affairs' Workers Have Served Suspensions For Violating The Hatch Act

They admitted to using their work email accounts to campaign for then-candidate Barack Obama back in 2008. The Office of Special Counsel says they did that, despite daily reminders from the agency about the Hatch Act and its restrictions. One employee served a two-week suspension; the other served three weeks. The Hatch Act bans government workers from using their official positions to engage in political activity. Congress is considering loosening the Hatch Act for that state and local workers — but not feds.
