GOP Governors Question Whether Consumer Chief Violated Hatch Act

The conservative group America Rising Squared filed a formal complaint with the Office of the Special Counsel (OSC) last week against Cordray calling for a investigation into his alleged Hatch Act violations.

“For Richard Cordray to use his perch at the CFPB to plot a run for Governor violates his pledge to taxpayers and proves that the only thing he cares about is advancing his political career,” Brian Rogers, the group’s executive director said in a statement.

“We hope the Office of Special Counsel takes this complaint seriously and conducts a full investigation to determine the extent to which the CFPB Director violated the Hatch Act in order to coordinate his early campaign activities.”
