This week, news broke that U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins is resigning after federal investigators determined she had leaked non-public information to the Boston Herald about a political candidate to help an ally and then lied about it to federal investigators. The investigations from the Office of Special Counsel and the Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General found Rollins had leaked sensitive information to influence the primary election for Suffolk district attorney in favor of a candidate she supported.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report found that Rollins had violated federal regulations, numerous DOJ policies, her Ethics Agreement, and applicable law, and that her actions “fell far short of the standards of professionalism and judgment that the Department should expect of any employee.” The report also referred to her alleged false statements to the DOJ for criminal prosecution, but the department ultimately “declined prosecution.” Special Counsel Henry Kerner had written in his report to President Joe Biden that Rollins’ conduct “constitutes an extraordinary abuse of her authority and threatens to erode public confidence in the integrity of federal law enforcement actions.”

Rollins is backed by Democrat megadonor George Soros and will submit her resignation to Biden by the end of the week, according to her attorney Michael Bromwich. Her decision to resign comes amidst allegations that she had attempted to interfere with the primary election in violation of the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits what federal employees can do in partisan races.

The news of Rollins’ resignation has sparked a mixed response among the public, with some applauding the DOJ for taking action against her and others questioning why there were no criminal charges brought against her. Regardless, her resignation serves as a reminder that federal employees must uphold high standards of ethics and integrity while performing their duties.
