Psaki Accused of Breaking a Law
US White House press secretary Jen Psaki was suspected of violating federal law. This was reported by Reuters, citing the nonprofit organization for the oversight of ethics.
The organization called for an investigation into Psaki, suspected of misconduct because of her support from the podium of the U.S. administration for the Democratic candidate for governor of Virginia.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel requesting a review of the Hatch Act. This document, passed in the United States in 1939, prohibits government employees other than the president and vice president from speaking out in support of candidates in elections.
According to the nonprofit, Psaki violated the law by endorsing running politician Terry McAuliffe.
McAuliffe, who served as Virginia's governor from 2014 to 2018, became an opponent of Republican Glenn Allen Youngkin.
During a briefing for reporters, Psaki said: "We will do everything we can to help former Governor McAuliffe, and we believe in the agenda he represents."
As a result, this fact is indicated in a complaint filed with the appropriate agency. Disciplinary action has been requested against Psaki.
The gubernatorial election will be held in Virginia on November 2, 2021.
Earlier, the White House allowed the dismissal of civil servants because of the refusal to vaccinate against COVID-19.
