Should Kellyanne Conway step down?

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel found Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway violated the Hatch Act by "advocating for and against candidates" in the 2017 Alabama Senate race.

In a new report, the OSC special counsel, Henry Kerner, pointed to Conway's TV interviews conducted in her "official capacity" in November and December of last year. The agency said Conway "impermissibly mixed official government business with political views about candidates in the Alabama special election." One of the two interviews was on CNN's "New Day," and the second was on Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

Conway has been at the center of controversy since joining the Trump White House: making up terrorist attacks, coining the term "alternative facts" and even blaming President Obama for the Las Vegas shooting. The Hatch Act violation is the final straw for many. Conway needs to step down.

Many are calling on Conway to either resign or be fired.

Others believe Conway's violation is just in line with the White House's approach to the rule of law.

But others are defending Conway, arguing she is being unfairly targeted.

Jonah Goldberg argues in the National Review that Conway is treated unfairly by the mainstream media, and she is not the first communications official to lie on behalf of a politician.

Here’s a news flash for the news industry: Birds are gonna fly, fish are gonna swim, and politicians are gonna lie. The assumption that Conway is uniquely dishonest strikes me as not only preposterous but irrelevant. If she’s that dishonest, a good interviewer will make that clear to the viewer. Personally, I think Jake Tapper is more than capable of holding anyone’s feet to the fire.
