Kathleen Sebelius Under Fire
09/13/2012

A government ethics office says Health and
Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated a federal law
that restricts political activity by government officials.
     In a report Wednesday, the federal Office of Special Counsel
said off-the-cuff remarks by Sebelius during a February 25th speech
to a gay rights group in North Carolina violated the Hatch Act.
     Sebelius called for President Barack Obama's re-election and
endorsed a Democratic candidate for governor.
     In a formal response, Sebelius said that any violation was
"technical and minor" and was corrected after her official trip
was reclassified as political, and the government was repaid for
her travel.
     Since Sebelius is a Cabinet official, the ethics office referred
the case to the White House for "appropriate action."
