Con­way ‘coun­selled’ for Ivanka pitch

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

WASHINGTON — A White House spokesman says top ad­viser Kellyanne Con­way has been “coun­selled” af­ter she urged peo­ple to buy Ivanka Trump prod­ucts dur­ing an in­ter­view on Fox News. Sean Spicer says: “She’s been coun­selled, and that’s all we’re go­ing to say.” Con­way spoke on Fox News Thurs­day morn­ing from the White House brief­ing room. She en­cour­aged peo­ple to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.” She made the com­ments a day af­ter Trump at­tacked Nord­strom on Twit­ter for drop­ping his daugh­ter’s fash­ion line. While Trump him­self is not sub­ject to the stan­dards of eth­i­cal con­duct for fed­eral em­ploy­ees, Con­way is. Among the rules: An em­ployee shall not use his or her of­fice “for the en­dorse­ment of any prod­uct, ser­vice or en­ter­prise.”
