Protecting the President is one of the highest honors anyone working in the government could assume. But for some reason, this ungrateful Trump hater doesn’t think so. Who is this unpatriotic brat? You’ll be surprised to learn she is a secret service agent.
The Daily Wire has more:
“Senior U.S. Secret Service agent in charge of the Secret Service’s Denver district has posted messages on social media critical of Donald Trump, including one last October in which she stated she would that she would endure “jail time” rather than “taking a bullet” for him.
Kerry O’Grady wrote on Facebook in October:
As a public servant for 23 years, I struggle to not 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 a disaster for this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside her. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.
The “I am with her” mantra was a central part of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. According to the U.S. office of Special Counsel, the Hatch Act states a member of the executive branch staff “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,” and ‘May not use any e-mail 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.”
There is no clear standard as to whether the Secret Service explicitly bans agents and other employees from engaging in political speech on social media.
Before Trump was elected, O’Grady posted a Huffington Post story with the headline: “Scott Baio Defends Trump’s Sexism with More Sexism” on Facebook, adding, “One word: douche. How do you like them apples?!” In late November, she shared a story from Vox, which had commented on the nomination of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, by saying, “Just a few years ago, this would have been unimaginable.” O’Grady added, “We are moving our civil rights into a period of bigotry, misogyny and racism that this country has not tolerated for decades. Dark ages. I am horrified and dismayed beyond words.”
