Federal officials, other than the president and vice-president, are prohibited from engaging in political activities. The Office of the Special Counsel is investigating Betsy DeVos, writes Politico, because she attacked Democratic candidate Joe Biden during a FOX News interview.

DeVos would become one of the most high-profile Trump officials known to have been investigated for violating the Hatch Act. Depending on what OSC finds, she would be the second member of the Trump Cabinet to be found to have violated the law. At least 12 Trump senior officials have violated the Hatch Act, according to the OSC, the independent agency that probes possible violations. In most cases, the office decided that the violation was minor enough to merit only a warning letter. Only one case, that of former senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, was sent to President Donald Trump for action, and he didn’t act on it.

Why do I imagine that Trump will overlook this breach of the law? The law is what he says it is, right?
