Feds: HUD Secretary Julián Castro violated Hatch Act in interview regarding Hillary Clinton


#1

SAN ANTONIO— A U.S. Office of Special Counsel report released Monday found that Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro violated the Hatch Act, which restricts the political activity of some federal employees, during an April interview with Yahoo News.

Castro’s statements during the interview, according to a OSC news release, mixed his “personal political views with officials agency business despite his efforts to clarify that some answers were being given in his personal capacity.” The department found he violated the act by “advocating for and against presidential candidates while giving a media interview in his official capacity on April 4, 2016,” the report states.

Does that kind of thing even matter any more?
Does the DOJ care, of the FBI, or even the American voter?

Eight years after the biggest financial meltdown in modern American history, where 5 million people lost their jobs, and the same number, their homes, all predicated on virulent greed and corruption of the most prestigious banks, aided and abetted by government regulation agencies, Americans are on the cusp of making a demonstrably corrupt woman their president.
Corruption is a matter of profound indifference to the average American, from the top on down.

What people seem more interested in is free stuff too, and having their own finger in the pie.

I don’t think there is a serious chance of him being Clinton’s VP after this.
