Julian Castro defends his Hatch Act violation as “mistake”


Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro (D), took part in a town hall hosted by Fox News in Tempe, Arizona.

In the town hall, Castro commented on a recent recommendation from the Office of Special Counsel, which suggested that White House adviser Kellyanne Conway should be fired for violating the Hatch Act.

Agreeing with the suggestion from the OSC, a spotlight shone on Castro who also violated the Hatch Act in 2016.
