The Hatch Act was a law passed to ensure that government bureaucrats don’t negatively affect elections. It prevents those working for the federal government from working for or expressly adovcating against people running for office.
Dr. Tom Nichols, a Anti-Trump Republican and professor at the Naval War College, didn’t get the memo and clearly violated the law when he bashed Donald Trump, here’s how his employer responded:
The U.S. Naval War College has defended the ardent denunciation of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump by its national security professor Dr. Tom Nichols, a self-identified “Never Trump Republican,” arguing that he has the right to do so.
However, as an employee of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), he is covered by the Hatch Act, which prohibits government workers from participating in partisan politics.
The U.S. Naval War College is operated by the U.S. taxpayer-funded Department of Defense.
Can you imagine if Nichols dared speak against Hillary? He would be fired in a heart beat. More big government liberal hypocrisy. Leftist bureaucrats are frightened of Trump because he is promising to clean up the government of partisan hacks.
