Democrats on a House committee will question the head of the General Services Administration (GSA) today about accusations that she improperly engaged in partisan politics, but committee Republicans are expected to turn the session into a bare-knuckled free-for-all.
Mr. Bloch, who served on the Justice Department's Task Force for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives and was named to head OSC three years ago by Mr. Bush, said Mrs. Doan violated the Hatch Act when at the conclusion of a meeting with Scott Jennings, special assistant to the president, and a deputy of political adviser Karl Rove she asked whether GSA could help Republican candidates.
U.S. Special Counsel Scott J. Bloch, who heads OSC, told President Bush in the report that Mrs. Doan engaged in "the most pernicious of political activity" banned by the 1939 Hatch Act and recommended that she "be disciplined to the fullest extent."
