Joe Biden’s Health and Human Services secretary, the radically pro-abortion Xavier Becerra, violated federal law by using his official position to promote his own politics, according to a new ruling.

It is the Office of Special Counsel that ruled Becerra broke the law and Special Counsel Henry Kerner told Biden it happened when Beceerra publicly, while appearing as a government official, promoted his choice for senator from California, Alex Padilla.

“As explained in the accompanying report, OSC concluded that Secretary Becerra violated the Hatch Act by expressing support for Senator Alex Padilla’s reelection while speaking in his official capacity at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Annual Awards Gala on September 15, 2022,” Kerner explained.

A report from Fox News pointed out under federal law, the Hatch Act, federal officials are barred from publicly endorsing candidates or issues while they are acting as public officials.

They can express those opinions only when it’s clear they are speaking from a personal point of view.

“The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election. In delivering his speech, Secretary Becerra impermissibly mixed his personal electoral preference with official remarks,” Kerner said.

He said, “While federal employees are permitted to express support for candidates when speaking in their personal capacity, the Hatch Act restricts employees from doing so when speaking as a government official.”

Becerra, responding to the accusation, claimed that he really didn’t mean to say what he said, that his comments were “inadvertent,” and he regretted his violation.

He said, “I now understand why they were not permitted,” noting that he has gotten “counseling” on the issue.

Padilla arrived in the Senate as a replacement for Kamala Harris.

Becerra has gone out of his way multiple times to irritate and offend members of Congress, including just weeks ago when he repeatedly refused to say what part of his department’s work force still was working from home, long after the COVID pandemic has been gone.

Becerra also has been pro-abortion in the extreme. He has promised “everything” is on the table as he orchestrates a fight against limits on chemical abortions across the nation.

In fact, when a federal court imposed those minor limits, such as having the chemicals dispensed in person by a doctor rather than having them mailed out, Becerra “did not rule out defying the order,” reports have confirmed.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Question: Why do the political and corporate leaders of America – long the freest, most successful, most prosperous and most Christian nation in history – bow and scrape before China, a ruthless, communist, totalitarian and explicitly atheistic dictatorship openly committed to ruling the world, including America?

The astonishing answers come into focus only when one contemplates both the unprecedented level of political and financial corruption in America’s ruling class (multiple Biden family members received $31 million in payola from China), and simultaneously the communist Chinese government’s brilliantly devious methods of unconventional total warfare, by which China is stealthily infiltrating, subverting, corrupting and colonizing the United States of America.

The China threat has rarely been more dramatically or pointedly documented than in the sensational March issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOW CHINA IS CONQUERING AMERICA.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
