“The entire [Office of Political Affairs] staff was enlisted in pursuit of Republican success at the polls and many OPA employees believed that effort was part of their official job duties,” the report concludes. “Based on the extent of the activities described below, OSC concludes that the political activities of OPA employees were not incidental to their official functions, and thus U.S. Treasury funds were unlawfully used to finance efforts to pursue Republican victories at the polls in 2006.”
I suppose that it's too much to ask that the Village Idiots remember this relentless Republican malfeasance the next time some Democrat is caught violating the spirit of the Hatch Act. But, no, IOKIYAR.
