The reason for this course is that more than 300,000 employees of the federal government violated the Hatch Act in 2008. As you might imagine, these violations were not done by rabid supporters of McCain and Palin.

Can you support that allegation, or is it just your "opinion"?

The Bush administration used a White House political office as a "boiler room" to support Republican congressional candidates in violation of federal law, a report released Monday by an independent government watchdog agency concludes.

The findings of the report by the Office of Special Counsel echo those of a 2008 House Oversight Committee investigation, which concluded that the activities of the Office of Political Affairs during the administration of President George W. Bush represented a "gross abuse of the public trust."
