Kellyanne Conway has ignored a congressional subpoena to testify about her Hatch Act violations.
Liz Hempowicz, Director of Public Policy at the Project On Government Oversight (POGO), stated:
“Kellyane Conway’s blatant disrespect for both Congress and the law is a major cause for concern: no one is above the law, even if they work in the White House. Ms. Conway must be held to the same standard as all federal employees governed by the Hatch Act.
“Furthermore, it is crucial that the power of the congressional subpoena not be diminished or ignored. Congress has the responsibility, and the obligation, to hold Ms. Conway accountable under the law for her actions. The Hatch Act is key to keeping partisan politics out of the executive branch, and enforcing it—especially at the highest level of government—is in the best interest of our country.”
