The U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts Rachael Rollins tried to “sabotage” another political candidate’s campaign, according to an Office of Special Counsel (OSC) report published on Wednesday.

The report found that Rollins violated the Hatch Act twice in 2022, abusing her power as U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, according to the report. She committed the first violation in July 2022 when she went to a “political party fundraiser in her official capacity,” and the second violation took place throughout August and September when she “repeatedly attempted to sabotage the campaign of a political candidate by leaking non-public U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) information to the media to plant a story that the candidate she opposed was facing a DOJ investigation.”

The report describes the second violation as “one of the most egregious Hatch Act violations that OSC has ever investigated.”

Part 2. With a new second case, Rollins resigns with pending charges and other Hatch Act issues that are being looked in to but not charged.

A Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts is expected to resign following a lengthy ethics probe conducted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general regarding her political ties, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

Rachael Rollins, who was sworn into the role in 2022 after being appointed and confirmed in 2021, will submit her official resignation to President Joe Biden before the end of the day on Friday, her attorney told AP. The DOJ launched its investigation after Rollins attended a Democratic National Committee fundraiser featuring First Lady Jill Biden in July 2022, during which investigators also looked into her travel history and use of a personal cellphone for business purposes, the AP reported.

The DOJ examined a trip Rollins took to California paid for by an outside group, AP reported in November. The investigation is the second into Rollins, as the U.S. Office of Special Counsel was investigating whether her appearance at the fundraiser violated the Hatch Act — which limits the political activity of federal employees.

    Old Dude:

    Did you care when several Trump officials reportedly violated the Hatch Act?

    Just curious.

    Absolutely (short answer). AND many times the Hatch Act is questionable. So I look at that on both sides also.

    This one is not only a violation of the Hatch Act, but a violation of all the laws pertaining to illegal disclosure of case documents. That was the big reason. Hatch Act in this case, means they may not be charging on the federal charges of disclosing the other documents. I dunno, won't be over for a few years.

    Just FYSA, perceived violations of the Hatch Act.

    When they had base stickers for military bases, federal sites, it was a violation to have ANY politically relative bumper stickers if you had a base sticker.

    The year burnie was running, a friend of mine (named Bernie) had a bernie sticker in his cubicle. They were horrified and made him take it down. We thought it was stoopid, but they were lawyers, so....

    Another one. Wearing any uniform of service in a political meeting, or anything like that without written permission from your command. Obviously, when pedojoe had the Marines behind him, they were there with permission (there was a big deal about it, I didn't think anything of it)

    So anything that you use your position or representation of your position to gain favor outside of the scope of your work.

    More than a dozen top Trump administration officials violated the terms of the Hatch Act in the run-up to the 2020 elections, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said in a report released Tuesday.

    The list includes several Cabinet officials and top White House aides, including Trump’s former secretary of State Mike Pompeo, chief of staff Mark Meadows and press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

    As I said. Were any of them charged. Period.

    You're making shit up because you have nothing else. Does it make you feel "bigger" if you do inane stuff like this? Because to me, it looks like you're just grasping at straws.
