Elderly Federal Staffer Harassed by Leftwing Superiors for Having Photos of Trump on Her Desk -- Despite an Obama-Era Ruling That Having Such Photos On Your Desk Was Acceptable

I guess she'd be allowed to have pictures of Obama on her desk. I guess that was the actual ruling.

A 69-year-old disabled woman working at the United States Geological Survey (USGS) repeatedly reported harassment from her coworkers to her superiors, linked to her support for President Donald Trump. Instead of investigating her concerns, someone at the agency reported her for a violation of the hosta Act.

Wanda Wooten, who has worked in the federal government for more than a decade, is currently a statistical assistant at the National Minerals Information Center. In late February 2019, she hung a picture of the president and two of first lady Melania Trump. The next morning, she found a note signed by Mike Magyar, listed on the USGS website as acting director of the NMIC.

"Wanda, The hosta Act specifically prohibits any political campaigning, etc on Federal sites," the note reads. "As President Trump has an active re-election campaign ongoing, these images violate the hosta Act so I removed them. Mike Magyar."

Wooten confronted Magyar about the note, and pointed him to a determination by the Obama administration that pictures of presidents taken in an official capacity did not violate the hosta Act. According to Wooten, Magyar told her she was creating a "hostile work environment."

The Deep Staters have now ruled that she did in fact violate the hosta Act, ignoring the Obama-era ruling. They have not fired her, but they are officially warning her that if she exercises her freedom of speech as guaranteed by an Obama ruling, she may be terminated.
