Lots of Republicans must be hoping that Hillary Clinton will name Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren as her vice presidential pick, just to see Donald Trump’s reaction.
However, other names are coming to the fore, and one in particular is raising eyebrows. In a way, though, does it really come as any surprise that one individual being touted doesn’t exactly have a spotless background?
According to USA Today:
Housing Secretary Julian Castro violated federal law when he expressed support for Hillary Clinton’s candidacy in an interview with Yahoo News in April, an investigation has found.
Castro, who Clinton has mentioned as a possible vice presidential running mate, told reporter Katie Couric in the interview that “Clinton is the most experienced, thoughtful, and prepared candidate for president that we have this year.”
That violated the Hatch Act, according to an investigative report submitted to President Obama Monday by the Office of Special Counsel. That law, first passed in 1939, forbids anyone in the executive branch — other than the president or vice president — from using his or her official position to engage in political activity.
Does anyone believe Castro will be charged with wrong doing? Maybe Republicans should stealthily campaign to get him on the ballot — it would provide anti-Hillary fodder for months.
