A secret agent is under fire after suggesting on Facebook that she wouldn’t take a bullet for Donald Trump.
The Secret Service said it’s “taking appropriate action,” USA Today reports.
Special Agent Kerry O’Grady wrote, “As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act. So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position. Despite the fact that I am expected to take a bullet for both sides. But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.”
O’Grady removed the post several days later and said she would protect the president as required by law.
“It was an internal struggle for me but as soon as I put it up, I thought it was not the sentiment that I needed to share because I care very deeply about the mission,” she said.
