An employee of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agreed to resign this week after admitting she posted more than 100 social media messages during work hours or on agency property in 2016, urging people to vote for Hillary Clinton.

The disclosure came in a news release from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC).

The article goes on to state the following:

The agreement between the employee and the OSC includes a five-year ban from working in the federal government, the statement said.

The posts were considered a violation of the federal Hatch Act, which prohibits most government employees from engaging in most political activities while on duty, the release said.

The woman continued the behavior despite being approached by ethics watchdogs, the OSC said.

“When a federal employee emphatically and repeatedly engages in political activity while on duty or in the workplace, OSC takes that very seriously,” Special Counsel Henry J. Kerner said. “This employee thumbed her nose at the law and engaged in vocal partisan politics both with her colleagues and on social media.

Below is the full press release posted by the USOSC:

WASHINGTON, D.C./August 7, 2018 – The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) today announced a settlement agreement reached with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employee who agreed to resign and not return to federal service for five years after committing numerous Hatch Act violations. The employee admitted to posting more than 100 social media messages between March and November 2016 in support of then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton while on duty or in the workplace. She also admitted to, while at work, telling coworkers to vote for Hillary Clinton and inviting them to attend a campaign rally. The punitive settlement terms considered that the employee had significant Hatch Act knowledge and received guidance from ICE via email and annual ethics training, but failed to change her behavior, even after OSC interviewed her.

“When a federal employee emphatically and repeatedly engages in political activity while on duty or in the workplace, OSC takes that very seriously,” Special Counsel Henry J. Kerner said. “This employee thumbed her nose at the law and engaged in vocal partisan politics both with her colleagues and on social media.

Considering her knowledge of the Hatch Act and continuing disregard for the law, this employee’s resignation and debarment from federal service are proportionate disciplinary actions. This case serves as an important reminder that federal employees must be mindful of the Hatch Act’s prohibitions, especially given the upcoming midterm elections.”

    Good going! Now go after others that don’t adhere to the rules and constantly do whatever they want with no regard and no punishment of any kind. They all need to be held accountable for their actiins.
