Eighteen agencies have been asked by the Office of Special Counsel to
preserve electronic information dating back to January 2001 as part of
its governmentwide investigation into alleged violations of the law
that limits political activity in federal agencies.

Politicization of the federal government has been illegal for decades.
The 1939 Hatch Act specifically prohibits partisan campaign or
electoral activities on federal government property, including federal
agencies. But in 2005, Ken Mehlman, formerly one of Bush's top
political advisers, outlined the White House's strategy of utilizing
government resources for partisan gain.
