Kerry O'Grady, a senior official with the U.S. Secret Service, maybe be facing disciplinary action for her anti-Trump Facebook posts.

The matter was sent to the Office of the Inspector General, but then sent back to the Secret Service for possible disciplinary action.

During the interview with Washington Examiner Kerry O'Grady regretting the posting, said that "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."

So what did she post on her Facebook page?
"
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.


In an interview with the Washington Examiner, O'Grady said she regretted the posting.

O'Grady made the comments back in October when the presidential campaigns were still in full swing.
