Rhee campaigning for Fenty?
Sometime this summer, you might answer a knock at your door to find Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee standing there, ready to tell you what a swell job Mayor Adrian M. Fenty has done, Bill Turque reports on D.C. Schools Insider.
But if she follows the legal advice she's received, she'll introduce herself as plain old "Michelle Rhee," without "Chancellor" or any other mention of her role as head the District's public school system. That's because the Hatch Act, the federal law that regulates political activity by D.C. government employees, bans the use of official titles or positions while campaigning.
