WALTER SHAUB: OBAMA-ERA DOUCHEBAG OF THE WEEK

For his amazing display of hypocrisy, I nominate the Obama-appointed, former Director of the United States Office of Government Ethics (January 9, 2013 to July 19, 2017), Walter Shaub, douchebag of the week for accusing President Trump’s spokesperson, Sarah Huckabee Sanders of an “ethics violation” for a tweet – while overlooking the rampant criminality, self-dealing, and ethical lapses that surrounded the Obama Administration.

Obama administration official accuses Sarah Huckabee Sanders of ethics violation for Red Hen tweet

A former Obama administration official has accused White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of breaking ethics rules by confirming reports that she was kicked out of a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant by its anti-Trump owner.  Walter Shaub, who served as director of the Office of Government Ethics under President Obama before being replaced last year by President Trump, said Saturday that Mrs. Sanders violated the Code of Federal Regulations by using her official Twitter account to respond to the flurry of media coverage.

Sarah, I know you don’t care even a tiny little bit about the ethics rules, but using your official account for this is a clear violation of 5 CFR 2635.702(a). It’s the same as if an ATF agent pulled out his badge when a restaurant tried to throw him/her out,” tweeted Mr. Shaub. The referenced section prohibits government employees from using their public office for private gain by “inducement or coercion of benefits.”

“An employee shall not use or permit the use of his Government position or title or any authority associated with his public office in a manner that is intended to coerce or induce another person, including a subordinate, to provide any benefit, financial or otherwise, to himself or to friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity,” says the section, as per the Legal Information Institute website.

Rank hypocrisy …

Has there ever been a more egregious example of a public employee using their government position, title, and authority of the office “in a manner that is intended to coerce or induce another person, including a subordinate, to provide any benefit, financial or otherwise, to himself or to friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity” than Hillary Clinton who served as the United States Secretary of State (January 21, 2009 – February 1, 2013)?

And even though their actual appointments only overlapped for little less than a month, where was his warning about Hillary Clinton’s activities which continued well past the time she left office and the time she campaigned for the Presidency of the United States?

Bottom line …

What happened to Sarah Huckabee Sanders was revealed by a third-party unassociated with Sanders. And, it is a legitimate news story when someone targets a government official and their family because of the President in office.

Virtue-signaling progressive socialist democrats like Shaub are what’s wrong with out nation – a partisan hack who conveniently overlooked the corruption and criminality that swirled about him, only to emerge from the slime to throw mud on a government official doing her job.

With people like Shaub serving in high office, we are screwed.
