Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway has removed her White House title from her Twitter bio, leaving her Twitter profile blank.
It’s uncertain why the title was removed from Conway’s account, and the White House declined to comment on the record to the Washington Examiner.
Earlier this month, the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint with the Office of Special Counsel for potential violations of the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from using their office to campaign for or against political candidates.
As a result, CREW requested the Office of Special Counsel investigate whether Conway violated the Hatch Act by using her official government Twitter account “to promote the Republican Party and to post an image of President Trump’s campaign slogan ‘Make America Great Again.’”
The group is also interested if comments made during a Fox News interview about how voters for “red-state Democrats” are not in favor of the “socialist way the Democratic party is going” violated the Hatch Act.
“By sharing these posts on a Twitter account that Ms. Conway uses for official government business and giving a television interview from the grounds of the White House that mixed official government business with political views about partisan candidates only weeks before their elections, she engaged in political activity prohibited by law,” the complaint reads.
CREW did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Washington Examiner.
The Office of Special Counsel determined in March that Conway violated the Hatch Act on two occasions. The president generally oversees Hatch Act violations, which can result in punishments such as an official reprimand, a civil penalty of up to $1,000, or other punishments.

This is typical of this administration as they appear to feel they can do or say anything with impunity.MA

TOTUS will be blamed and condemned from here on for his callous and reckless administrative style by a major portion of the United States and the longtime allies in Europe. To be clear Mr. Resident has conducted this administration like he has rub his business and that is to maintain chaos from event to event no matter the outcome. His sole objective is his own image which by the time his reign (not term of office) is done, there could be a general scrubbing of his name where possible. There have already been several hotels that have removed his name from their buildings. His tenure as CIC will not be fondly remembered but more of a cringe factor when mentioned. The next White House resident will have a huge gap to close and hopefully be up to the task. One can determine the state of Trump when you see him in a press conference with his arm crossed in defiance when hard questions are asked. This defiance is what his staff has to deal with daily but cannot say so. It is apparent that he is at once a revealer and concealer since his election has brought out the worst in us as a country and allowed the irresponsible Congress to pass a poor Tax program ( which is good for them) and attack the ACA which affects the health of millions (but not theirs). It is not possible to persuade any radical fringes until they themselves see the light as it were but it is possible to enlighten the uninformed with the truth because that is what we have and the truth will always remain so.
