A Secret Service agent is in trouble this morning after it was discovered that she wrote a Facebook post saying that she’d rather go to jail than take a bullet for President Trump.

The post was made back in October in the middle of the election campaign season. The agent, Kerry O’Grady, shared her feelings about Trump potentially becoming President and told the world what she wasn’t going to be doing at work.

The post read:

“As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act. So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position. Despite the fact that I am expected to take a bullet for both sides. But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.”

The Hatch Act that O’Grady speaks of bars certain federal employees from making political statements or engaging in political activity that “promotes fairness and nonpartisanship within the workplace.” In other words, under this act, certain federal employees, including Secret Service agents, are expected to shut up and do their jobs.

O’Grady took down the post a couple of days later, but that’s almost forever in internet time, giving people plenty of opportunities to screenshot it and save it for later. Which is what just happened.

Now that screenshots of her post have surfaced online, many Twitter “patriots” are calling for her resignation. The Secret Service tells USA Today that they are aware of O’Grady’s post and are taking appropriate action.
