UPDATE: USSS Agent on Paid Leave After Saying She Wouldn’t Take Bullet for Trump Emmanuel January 29, 2017 Crime, US News 2 You Might Like The secret service agent, who publicly announced her disdain for President Trump and endorsed Hillary Clinton, is now on paid leave for her comments eluding to not being willing to take a bullet for the president. From Fox News: The Colorado secret service agent who allegedly posted on Facebook that she would be unwilling to “take a bullet” for President Trump was placed on paid leave, Abby Huntsman reported. Kerry O’Grady, the special agent-in-charge of the agency’s Denver bureau, posted on the social media network last year that the New York Republican would be a “disaster” and that a 1939 law prohibiting political activism by certain government employees “be damned.” As FoxNews.com reported: O’Grady reportedly posted on Facebook in October, “As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act,” O’Grady wrote. “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. 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.” The Hatch Act, named for former Sen. Carl Hatch (D-N.M.), bars certain federal employees from engaging in political activity. Paid leave doesn’t seem like the justice that needs to be served for her unprofessional actions. If I were president Trump I wouldn’t trust this woman on my team. 2 Responses Ronald Rogers January 29, 2017 She should be fired! Reply JoAnne Anderson January 29, 2017 I think she should not have any pay….she should be fired. That was her jpob, to protect and defend the President of the United States. This attitude compromises the safety of the President and those around him. Another stupid liberal….but she supports Hillary, under investigation by the FBI and it is continuing…bad judgement there.
