Modern Healthcare

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel has concluded that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated federal law when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech she gave last February in Charlotte, N.C., in her official capacity as head of HHS.

According to the OSC’s letter to President Barack Obama, Sebelius violated the Hatch Act, a 1939 law that prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election.
