The Secret Service agent who said she refused to “take a bullet” for President Trump has just learned what her latest consequence would be.
Kerry O’Grady, who has 23 years experience, will be permanently removed after her horrendous comment she posted on Facebook.
Washington Examiner reported she is now on administrative leave.
When this story first came out in January, they included what O’Grady originally posted last October.
As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act. So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position. Despite the fact that I am expected to take a bullet for both sides.
But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.
In an interview with Washington Examiner, O’Grady said multiple times her online remarks would not have any effect on her job performance.
Regardless, she apparently violated the Hatch Act for her position as an agent. The media outlet reported two rules of the act she had to follow.
May not post a comment to a blog or a social media site that advocates for or against a partisan political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group.
May not use any email account or social media to distribute, send or forward content that advocates for or against a partisan political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group.
Some Secret Service agents are reportedly concerned top officials could be protecting O’Grady from being fired. They think she could transfer within Homeland Security and get another job before retiring with a pension.
I believe she should get fired. It is inexcusable what O’Grady did.
