The U.S. Office of Special Counsel has opened a case file on Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke after receiving a complaint alleging he may have potentially violated the Hatch Act when he posted a photo of himself wearing a pair of “Make America Great Again” socks on social media.

“I can confirm that OSC received the complaint and has opened a case file,” Office of Special Counsel spokesman Zachary Kurz told the Washington Examiner. “However, I’m unable to comment on or confirm whether an investigation has been opened.”

The case file was first reported by CNN.

The article goes on to state the following:

The complaint, made by Campaign for Accountability in June, came after Zinke donned a pair of socks emblazoned with a President Trump-like figure and Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan when he attended the Western Governors’ Association’s annual meeting in South Dakota, also in June. Zinke then posted an image of the socks on Twitter, before deleting the tweet and writing an apology missive on the social media platform.

“Earlier I tweeted a pic of my new socks not realizing it had what could be viewed as a political slogan,” Zinke wrote. “I’ve deleted it and apologize for the mistake. I remain excited about all the incredible policy work POTUS is doing.”

    The Left can outwardly dislike and encourage outcry against our POTUS but a pair of socks, that no one could see if his pants were down, is worthy of investigation? Really? Here’s something … investigate Obama and his administration. They have all sorts of (sic) dirty laundry they can sort through and put under an investigation. I’m sure there are skid marks too.

    Whatever group installed an act to tell anyone what sort of undergarments they can/cannot wear were obviously having an insane moment…this dumb act needs to be trashed!

    Why do these asshole politicians get paid for this garbage. Maybe they need a reminder that they are public servants who work for the People.
