After slamming Joe Biden in a Fox News interview about his promise to roll back school choice policies, which her agency promoted through official channels on YouTube, she now stands accused of violating The Hatch Act which prohibits political activity by federal employees.

“The Secretary was asked to respond to oft-repeated criticism of her and her policies, and she defended her policies, including discussing the history of that criticism,” said a spokesperson. “The Hatch Act does not prohibit that kind of exchange with a journalist. Case closed.”
