Energy Secretary Granholm Violated Hatch Act by Encouraging Votes for Democrats During Interview

JTN:

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm violated the Hatch Act during a 2021 Instagram Live interview with “Marie Claire” magazine, according to a report by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

The federal law bars some federal government employees from using their official authority or influence to impact the results of an election.

During the interview in October 2021, Granholm was asked: “How do we get involved in this moment to make sure we pass these things?”

The interviewer was discussing policies that she said were “of particular interest to women, and for which women had ‘marched’ in the past, and how Congress is trying to pass legislation to enact some of those policies,” according to the report.

Granholm responded:

“The good news is that … marching and that voting gave Democrats a bare majority, but a majority, in the House in the Senate. And again, I am using Democrats as a substitute for the policies that you believe in, the policies that you would like to see happen. And what I say to people all the time is the most important thing you can do is make your voice heard. Vote! Put people in who agree with you. MORE

  1. Heads they win. Tails you lose.

    Your granddaddy signed you (not your name, just “you”) to the check he cashed. You don’t wanna make your granddaddy look stupid? Do you?

  2. So we dig up our grandparents and rob their skeletons of their old timey watches, wedding rings and gold teeth.

    You know we can only do that once, right?

    I’m not arguing. It’s a solid plan. Just pointing out this one small detail in case we need to dig up(pun totally intended)some more cash somewhere.

    “What is the penalty for violating the Hatch Act?”

    For a Democrat?

    Same as it is for stealing the Presidency.

    Nothing.

  4. ​A Hatch Act investigation is an administrative matter.
    All matters are adjudicated before the Merit Systems Protection Board, which is an administrative agency.​
    Administration agencies influenced by and controlled by Biden.
    The article is wasted ink. Nothing will come of this.

  5. I could never understand why anyone would ever be motivated to vote Democrat.
    Outside of being in the position to grift from the people’s (tax) money in some form of arranged kick back, there simply is no advantage to the regular Joe to vote Democrat. I understand the relationship unions have with Democrats and that goes back to arranged grifting, both ways. But anyone else pulling the lever for that group of liars and thieves (Democrat party) has a cognitive dissonance issue along with questionable ethics.

    “You know we can only do that once, right?”

    …kind of the problem with EVERY method of government theft, actually…

    “Socialists maintained that we shouldn’t take all the money away from all the people since all the people don’t have money. We should take all the money away from only the people who make money. Then, when we run out of that, we could take more money from the people who…hey, wait! Where’d you people go? What do you mean you’re “tax exiles in Monaco?”

    The (D) really does make one impervious to crimes/misdemeanors.

    If abortion is your motivating factor, then I have to presume that you neither believe in having a soul or reincarnation, which constitute the majority of the world religions.
    If your political perspective is based on one of the many abnormal gender identifications and or sexual attractions, then you are simply being used.
