The Hill: Warren suggests Mulvaney broke law by speaking to GOP donors

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday said that White House budget director Mick Mulvaney might have broken the federal Hatch Act by meeting with Republican donors and campaign officials earlier this month.  

"Your appearance at this private event with Republican donors and campaign officials raises questions about your compliance with the Hatch Act and other federal laws, your judgment, and your management of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFBP)," Warren wrote in an open letter to Mulvaney Wednesday

 Warren quoting a May 23 letter from Ana Galindo-Marrone, the Office of the Special Counsel's Hatch Act Unit chief, to Mulvaney, wrote, "you are prohibited from...soliciting...political contributions from any person...[and from] soliciting...the political activity of persons who have business pending before their employing office."
