IF you are apart of the secret service, you are supposed to be willing to do anything to defend the president, including taking a bullet for him. However, one secret service member Kerry O’Grady, who is not a fan of Trump, said she would rather take go to jail than take a bullet for Trump.
“As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to 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,” explained O’Grady in a facebook post.
“And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her,” she said. The “I am with Her” is a reference to Hillary Clinton’s campaign slogan.
The Hatch Act forbids federal employees from engaging in political activities, which O’Grady clearly broke with her post. Well she has been punished for her actions, but not in the way you would expect.
Because she was willing to put the president’s safety at risk has been put on paid leave. Yup, she is being paid to do nothing. Like a paid vacation. Do you think that she deserves a real punishment?
