Not this again.
Harris recently appeared on a video in which she speaks of her support for former Democratic Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who is running again for the same office. Psaki, meanwhile, said that the Biden administration supports McAuliffe’s agenda and is working to support his campaign. But conservatives allege that Harris’ and Psaki’s gestures go against IRS law and the Hatch Act, respectively—the latter of which many figures within the previous Trump administration were found to have violated.
Trending Politics, a conservative news outlet, noted that Harris’ appearance may violate an IRS law that bans churches and charities defined as 501(c)(3) organizations from being involved in political campaigns. The clip is scheduled to air in front of around 300 predominantly Black church congregations, according to CNN.
“I believe that my friend Terry McAuliffe is the leader Virginia needs at this moment,” Harris says in the video.
