ChillyPolly Posted September 14, 2015 Share Posted September 14, 2015 It's my understanding that a government employee, elected or not, has very different rights than a private citizen. If I understand what you mean, you are quite mistaken. Government employees, elected or not, also have the protection of the First Amendment. It does not necessarily protect them from being fired by their boss, or voted out by the electorate, but it should in theory protect them from interference from the Federal Government (especially when the Federal Government is not their boss and has none of the normal rights of an employer, as here).
