Office Of Government Ethics Wants The White House To Investigate Kellyanne Conway's Ivanka Trump Clothing Line Plug!

no title
Donald Trump is about as ethical as an Atlantic City prostitute.
So, it’s no surprise the Office of Government Ethics is stepping in after the president’s counselor gave a free commercial for his daughter’s clothing line.
Last week, Kellyanne Conway got heat for illegally endorsing Ivanka Trump‘s products in a Fox News interview in the wake of her drama with Nordstrom.
Now, the U.S. Ethics office is here to say there is “strong reason to believe” Conway should be punished for violating ethics standards!

Office director Walter Shaub penned a letter to the White House suggesting that Trump’s administration open an investigation after Conway’s impulsive TV commercial.
Shaub sent the letter after a bipartisan group of lawmakers from the House Oversight Committee asked the office to look into Trump’s counselor — who was reportedly “counseled” after the QVC moment.
According to federal ethics standards, public employees may not use their positions “for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.”

We assume a picture of POTUS is next to that definition…
The ethics office itself has no enforcement power, and disciplinary action against those who violate ethics standards is left to the agencies where they work — so in Kellyanne’s case, the White House.
Shaub asked for an answer from the White House by Feb. 28, but we have a feeling Drumpf will let his favorite Con woman off the hook again.
