"To determine whether he or she is subject to the
Hatch Act, a municipal employee must assess whether
he or she performs duties in connection with a program financed by federal monies. State and local programs that typically receive federal funding include,for example, public welfare, housing, transportation,and law enforcement. If a municipal employee performs duties in connection with an activity financed in whole or in part by a federal loan or grant, it will not matter that he or she receives his or her salary from non-federal monies; that he or she has no authority
or discretion on how those federal funds are spent; or that the federal monies fund only a small portion of the program; he or she will be subject to the Hatch Act.
Furthermore, if a municipal employee is subject to the Hatch Act, he or she will continue to be covered by the Hatch Act even when he or she is on annual leave, sick leave, leave without pay, or administrative leave.

<<<Therefore, an employee running for office in a partisan election may not avoid the requirements of the Hatch Act by taking a leave of absence.">>>

So EXACTLY HTF was Abdelazim "rehired" and EXACTLY WTF was his status during the campaign??

"Applicability of the Hatch Act to Municipal
Officers and Employees"

That's the title of the above link..Google it..it will come up.

The point is that the "holding Abdelazim's job open" for him...raises Hatch Act concerns.
