The Office of Special Counsel has found that six White House employees violated the regulations that prohibit political activity during work hours, Federal Times reports.
The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a nonprofit government ethics organization, alerted the OCS of violations in early August, which all had to do with statements made on official Twitter accounts, according to the report.
The six White House Executive Office employees were not disciplined for the violations, but all agreed to delete the tweets once they were notified by the OSC, the article notes.
