Gov't. Watchdog: Kellyanne Conway Should Be Fired

A federal watchdog agency says Conway should be "removed from government service" for violating the Hatch Act "numerous times."

WASHINGTON -- A federal watchdog agency says White House adviser Kellyanne Conway should be removed from government service. 

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel claims Conway has violated the Hatch Act numerous times by publicly criticizing Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity as a White House adviser. 

The Hatch Act bars federal employees from engaging in political activity.  

A brief White House statement called the Conway recommendation "deeply flawed." 

The watchdog agency is not affiliated with now-former Special Counsel Robert Mueller or his investigation.
