DC Attorney General Seeks Council Approval for Allowing DC Government Lawyers to Run for Attorney General

WASHINGTON, D.C. – District of Columbia law should be amended to allow lawyers employed by the D.C. government to run for Attorney General, a position that will become an elective one next year, D.C. Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan told a D.C. Council committee today.

Testifying before the Committee on Government Operations, Nathan said that D.C. law should conform to a Hatch Act Modernization Act passed by Congress last year that said D.C. employees were no longer subject to restrictions in the federal Hatch Act that applied exclusively to federal employees.
