Kellyanne Conway, the first woman campaign manager who won a Presidential campaign, made the “mistake” of defending Ivanka Trump from attacks by saying buy her products on TV. Apparently, the uptight federal government which can’t find a crime in any of HRC’s/Cheryl Mills/Obama coverups, has managed to find Conway violated an ethics rule. Which the dems jumped all over like a fat kid on a donut! Truth is this guy should work on real ethic violations or be removed or transferred to the new Fairbanks Alaska branch to find “fake ethic” violations.
Federal ethics officials need more teeth in order to investigate and punish ethics violators, a nonprofit government watchdog group wrote Tuesday.
The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) “lacks the authority to investigate complaints of ethics noncompliance and to issue binding recommendations for disciplinary action,” Project On Government Oversight policy counsel Liz Hempowicz wrote.
“Currently, investigations, determinations, and disciplinary actions … are primarily left to the employing agency in noncriminal cases,” she continued. “For there to be true accountability, ethics investigations and enforcement should be conducted by an entity other than the agencies involved in the alleged violations.”
In a recent example, OGE wrote that “there is strong reason to believe” White House special counselor Kellyanne Conway “has violated the standards of conduct and that disciplinary action is warranted.”But OGE is barred from investigating and punishing Conway for using her position to promote Ivanka Trump’s clothing line last week.
