This should be enough:TPMmuckraker
has the essence of a Washington Post story:
Rove and his deputies traveled to various agencies throughout the government, lecturing management there about Republicans' political prospects.
With apparently this "restriction"
... no commands were to be given -- because such a directive would be a blatant violation of the Hatch Act, which forbids the use of government resources for political ends.
And the administration is on message with:
They were, each official said, "informational briefings about the political landscape."
Sorry. No sale. The political advisor and his staff should not be traveling to any agencies. Should not be giving briefings. None at all.
