Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio and current Secretary of HUD, is rumored to be Hillary’s pick for VP.
He’s perfect. He’s a perfect fit in every way for the Clinton Crime Family and the racketeering organization known as the Democratic Party.
Castro has been publicly sucking up to Hillary since early this year. In an interview with a completely discredited “journalist” Katie Couric Castro said, “taking off my HUD hat for a second and speaking individually, it is very clear that Hillary Clinton is the most experienced, thoughtful and prepared candidate for president that we have this year.” He also took some shots at Donald Trump.
Castro is a great fit for Hillary’s campaign because just like Hillary, he’s a criminal.
It turns out that Castro has been found in violation of the Hatch Act which was passed in 1939 and prohibits employees of the federal government from using their official authority or influence to affect the outcome of an election. Castro was the subject of an investigation by the Office of Special Counsel and a Referral Has Been Sent to President Obama for “Appropriate Action.”
It was his interview with Katie Couric that violated the Act. Castro issued a weaselly statement about the referral. “Based on the information I received regarding the interview in advance of the meeting, I expected that Ms. Couric’s questions would focus primarily on HUD’s activities and the growth of cities. When, during the live broadcast, I received a direct questions regarding specific candidates, I use the in the elegant phrase “taking off my HUD hat” to indicate my intention to respond in my personal capacity, and not as a representative of HUD.”
So Julian Castro expressed regret about his actions and never intended to violate any federal laws. So he gets a pass.
Where have we heard that before?
