White House blows off Hatch Act violation, continues using “MAGA” despite internal watchdog’s warning
- June 15, 2023
The White House appears to be blowing off its own internal watchdog by continuing to use the term “MAGA” in official communications despite warnings that staffers who do so are violating the Hatch Act, according to an Axios report.
“MAGA Republicans” has become a staple boogeyman of the Biden administration as it continues to navigate a porous southern border, an uncertain economic outlook and topless transgender activists on the White House lawn.
However, the White House’s use of the term appears to go against federal election rules. The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) warned the Biden administration that using the term “MAGA” in an official capacity violates the Hatch Act.
