"Democrats Probe Park Service Involvement in GOP Convention"

"Democrats are asking the National Park Service (NPS) to account for its involvement in the Republican National Convention after the agency agreed to host a fireworks display following President Trump’s acceptance speech.

Trump’s speech closing out the convention from the White House’s South Lawn culminated with a fireworks show around the Washington Monument, including fireworks spelling out "Trump" and "2020."

Democratic lawmakers are concerned the involvement of Park Service staff may have violated the Hatch Act, which bars federal employees from engaging in political activity while at work."
