LAWS ARE FOR THE LITTLE PEOPLE: Rep. Walsh: Obama should follow standard procedure, fire Sebelius for violating Hatch Act. “The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) said Wednesday that Sebelius violated the law when she publicly endorsed Obama’s re-election and North Carolina Lieutenant Gov. Walter Dalton’s gubernatorial primary in a multi-way race during a taxpayer-funded public event on Feb. 25, 2012. The standard penalty for violating the Hatch Act is termination. But, the White House has suggested that Obama will offer Sebelius special treatment and let her keep her job.”
If this were a Republican administration, the press would be making a big deal of this. But hey, it’s not a Republican administration, so no big deal.
