U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has been accused of violating the Hatch Act after she retweeted President Trump’s call to vote for South Carolina Republican Ralph Norman in the upcoming midterm elections.
The Hatch Act prohibits executive branch employees from partaking in political activity, and Office of Special Counsel guidelines state such employees should refrain from using official social media accounts to make political statements.
White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr. got nabbed for violating the Hatch Act earlier this month.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, a watch dog nonprofit, revealed Haley’s misconduct, saying in a statement: “Haley likely violated the Hatch Act by retweeting the first of a chain of tweets that President Trump posted in support of the election of Ralph Norman.”
Her retweet has since been deleted.
Haley underwent a tumultuous incident at an LGBT parade earlier this week, when activists hatefully chided she and her family.
