White House aide Kellyanne Conway twice violated the Hatch Act during the special US Senate election in Alabama late last year, according to the Office of the Special Counsel.

The Hatch Act of 1939 forbids employees in the Executive Branch from engaging in political activity. During the special election, Conway advocated for candidate Roy Moore (R) and railed against the ultimate winner, Doug Jones (D). Roy Moore was an accused pedophile.
