The Biden administration’s leftist partisan tendencies have once again come under scrutiny as officials face scathing accusations of engaging in political activities, in violation of federal law.

A complaint lodged by watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) alleges that several Biden administration officials, including those at the White House and the Small Business Administration (SBA), have repeatedly breached the Hatch Act.

The act prohibits public workers from conducting political activities at the expense of American taxpayers.

PPT Director Michael Chamberlain minced no words when speaking to the Daily Caller, the outlet first to report on the complaint. “The intent of the Hatch Act is pretty straightforward: If you’re part of the current government, you can’t engage in political speech in the course of your official duties,” Chamberlain said.

But, as Karine Jean-Pierre’s multiple violations show — and these incidents from the White House and SBA appear to provide more evidence of — it seems that these requirements escape some members of the Biden administration.”

The complaint originates from uncovered emails from White House Senior Communications Assistant Brianna Stonick to SBA employees.
