Jensen Cleared of Violating Hatch Act

(KCPW News) The federal government has ruled Salt Lake County Councilman and Unified Fire Authority Chief Michael Jensen has not violated the Hatch Act. The federal law prohibits government employees who oversee federal funds, or are paid with them, from engaging in partisan politics. Jensen says the ruling validates his belief that he’s done nothing wrong, but as KCPW’s Whittney Evans reports, Democrats who filed the complaint say they’re not satisfied.
