Secret Service Demotes Agent Who Declared She Wouldn't Do Her Job

Kathy O'Grady, the Secret Service special agent who said she would rather go to jail than take a bullet for President Trump, has been removed from her position.

The firing comes almost two months after Kerry O'Grady took to Facebook to express her condemnation of Trump and her strong preference for former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton one month before Election Day. Did he cross a line?

An investigation determined that O'Grady had violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from advocating for or against a partisan political party, candidate or partisan political group and forbids the use of any email account or social media to distribute, send or forward content that advocates for a partisan figure or party. So I keep quiet and skirt the median. Despite the fact that I am expected to take a bullet for both sides.

But this world has changed and I have changed. Hatch Act be damned.

Though some coins and a black bag were recovered later the thief also made off with several Secret Service lapel pins, a radio and a passport. O'Grady was the agent in charge of the Secret Service's Denver district who coordinated with Washington for presidential trips to the area.

"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.

From partying with hookers in Colombia, to letting dudes jump the White House fence and wander around the grounds, to leaving their laptops sitting around for anyone to pick up, the men and women who protect the President of the United States are having some PR problems. "I'm proud to do it and we serve the office of the president", she said.

The Secret Service launched an investigation when it learned of O'Grady's comments and two weeks ago posted her former job as an open position within the agency, the Washington Examiner reported Sunday. Current and former Secret Service agents worry that O'Grady will not be fired but instead transferred to a different division in the Department of Homeland Security, according to the Examiner.
