One overlooked detail in today’s Office of Special Counsel story: as was long suspected, the partisan PowerPoint presentation created by Karl Rove’s office and presented to appointees at the General Services Administration in January was actually shown widely throughout the administration:

The Los Angeles Times has learned that similar presentations were made by other White House staff members, including Rove, to other Cabinet agencies. During such presentations, employees said they got a not-so-subtle message about helping endangered Republicans.

Such presentations likely violate the Hatch Act, which explicitly prohibits partisan campaign activities on federal property.
