Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge appears to have made a significant stumble while on the dais in her official role as HUD Secretary.
Fudge commented on a local political race, openly promoting several Democrats in the process.
That is 100 percent illegal and a violation of the Hatch Act, an Act the media and Democrats regularly called out Trump staffers on.
The Hatch Act
The Hatch Act is not often enforced, as most administrations are given significant leeway on this.
That all changed when Trump came into office, as the media and Democrats called violation after violation against his staffers, some of which did result in fines.
Well, if we are going to treat everyone equally, that same standard must now be held to the Biden administration and Fudge’s comments appear to be a clear violation of the law.
Fudge was asked about possible candidates to fill the Senate seat currently occupied by Senator Rob Portman (R-OH).
This will be a seat that Democrats hope to flip from red to blue to extend their advantage in the Senate.
Fudge stated, “I have two friends that are thinking about it.
“Tim Ryan, of course, is thinking about it. I understand Nan Whaley is thinking about it.
“I mean, I think we’re going to put a good person in that race no matter who we choose, but they’re both friends.
“I think we have a good shot at it. I know people have written off Ohio. I haven’t written off Ohio.
“I believe we can win the Senate race.”
That is a violation because only the president and VP are exempt from the Hatch Act and her answer clearly promoted several Democrat politicians, which is prohibited via the Hatch Act.
Fudge had even admitted that she made a mistake, but that is not the issue here.
She violated the Hatch Act, now she must be investigated and fined, such as what happened to Trump staffers that did the same.
