Have you seen this Pro Trump ad from the US interior?

I am nauseated that he can use this Department for a politcal campaign ad:

1. Interior is a cabinet-level position, so it's not really a surprise.

The cabinet is full of yes-people.

3. Many of the replies to this Instagram post state that it is a violation of the Hatch Act.

Seems to me that using Government employees to advance his political campaign should be illegal. Instead we yawn and say this is just another "Donald will be Donald" moment. I'm beyond livid.

5. Oh, I'm pretty certain that it is.

I'm also certain that Trump doesn't care.

We really need some kind of independent oversight. Little late now, but....

2. Clearly a Hatch Act violation but there seem to be no penalties

...for those who defy the law and campaign for their “boss”.
