The 2024 presidential election is just around the corner. Democrats are doing more than we know to help Biden win.
And a top Biden official was accused of a shocking election crime.
The Democrat Party doesn’t like to talk about election interference.
That’s why anyone who brings it up has been labeled an “election denier” or “danger to democracy” ever since the 2020 election.
We are supposed to forget about the fact that the FBI colluded with Big Tech giants to silence conservative politicians and opinions.
But they can’t keep everything under wraps, and Americans are getting angry.
The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) of the United States of America came to the conclusion that Xavier Becerra, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), broke federal law.
Henry Kerner, the special counsel, wrote a letter to President Joe Biden in which he stated that Xavier Becerra violated the Hatch Act by publicly expressing support for the reelection of Alex Padilla, a Democrat representing California, while appearing in an official capacity as the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.
“As explained in the accompanying report, OSC concluded that Secretary Becerra violated the Hatch Act by expressing support for Senator Alex Padilla’s reelection while speaking in his official capacity at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Annual Awards Gala on September 15, 2022,” Kerner wrote.
“The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election,” Kerner continued.
“In delivering his speech, Secretary Becerra impermissibly mixed his personal electoral preference with official remarks.”
“While federal employees are permitted to express support for candidates when speaking in their personal capacity, the Hatch Act restricts employees from doing so when speaking as a government official,” he added.
Kerner wrote that with “a presidential election approaching next year, this report offers an opportunity to deter violations by reminding federal employees at all levels of the Hatch Act’s restrictions.”
As a result, Kerner said in the letter’s conclusion, “Accordingly, I submit to you the enclosed report, together with Secretary Becerra’s response, for your consideration.”
In his response to the OSC, Becerra referred to his remarks as a “inadvertent violation” and expressed regret for them.
He also stated that he “did not realize at the time that my off-the-cuff remarks” revealing his “personal voting intentions were in violation of the Hatch Act.”
“I now understand why they were not permitted,” Becerra said, also saying he received “additional counseling” from the HHS ethics department on the Hatch Act. Becerra said he would “work hard to ensure that there are no future violations.”
When then-Vice President Kamala Harris left the Senate to join the administration of former Vice President Joe Biden, Padilla was appointed to fill the vacancy.
Republicans in Congress have criticized Becerra’s policies, and only last month they questioned him under oath about the restrictions that his office has regarding remote employment.
Becerra refused on multiple occasions to answer questions on the percentage of his workforce that is still teleworking more than three years after the initial outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and at a time when many offices have returned to work.
