Discipline for Doan?

The US Special Counsel has called on President Bush to discipline GSA boss Lurita Alexis Doan (right) for breaking the Hatch Act. From the Washington Post:

"In a June 8 letter to Bush, Special Counsel Scott J. Bloch accused Doan of "engaging in the most pernicious of political activity" during a Jan. 26 lunch briefing involving 36 GSA political sppointees and featuring a PowerPoint presentation about the November elections by the White House's deputy director of political affairs.

At the presentation's conclusion, Doan asked what could be done to 'help our candidates,' according to a special counsel report."

The Special Counsel's office also claims Ms Doan "obstructed" their investigation into the original complaint. (WaPo)
