Complaint Filed Against Sarah Huckabee Sanders For Illegal Political Activity

A new complaint accuses Sarah Huckabee Sanders of engaging in illegal political activity by using her official government account to tweet a pic of herself and MAGA hat wearing Kanye West.

The complaint was filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) who said in a statement, “White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders likely violated the Hatch Act by using her official government Twitter account to tweet a photo of herself with Kanye West, who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, in the Oval Office, according to a complaint filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) with the Office of Special Counsel (OSC). The Hatch Act forbids government employees from using official accounts to tweet out partisan campaign propaganda, including President Trump’s campaign slogan.” read more

Fox News Dumps Live Trump Rally Coverage After Ratings Tank

Fox News has stopped covering Trump’s rallies live because they were drawing lower rating than their regular primetime programming.

And on Wednesday night, as Trump took the stage in Erie, Pa., at 7 p.m., Fox News stuck with its coverage of Hurricane Michael.” read more
