Rep. Nancy Mace accuses former staffers of ‘sabotaging’ her: report

Policy


Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) lashed out at her former employees on Friday, accusing them of hacking her phone, mismanaging her funds and destroying electronic devices as part of an effort to sabotage her term in Congress.

“I knew they were sabotaging the office for a while,” the South Carolina Republican told the Daily Mail. “I didn’t know to what extent they were doing it.

“They were signing my name on documents they didn’t have permission for; one of them submerged his electronic devices underwater so we couldn’t access his files. They deleted files, some of them deleted files from our server, so there was no documentation for the new staff that arrived,” the 46-year-old man alleged.

The 46-year-old congresswoman’s office has been plagued by staff departures since her vote in October 2023 to unseat former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Between December 2023 and February 2024, nine Mace staff members left his office, the outlet reported.

Former employees have described the work environment in Mace’s office as “toxic,” even alleging that the congresswoman would openly discuss her sex life with her ex-fiancé.

In January, his former chief of staff, Dan Hanlon, launched a brief campaign to win the primary in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District, but ended his campaign two months later.

Mace said it has been difficult to keep new employees from quitting because of the actions of some disgruntled employees.

“We had another former employee who leaked the names of new employees we were hiring so he could write negative stories about them,” he told the Daily Mail.

“We even had some interns quit because the former staff threatened them, they threatened that they would never get a job on the hill if they worked in my office.”

Mace further alleged that a former employee hacked into her devices and was able to track the whereabouts of her and her two children for months.

“They could literally see where I was at all times. They could see my kids’ calendars, my doctor appointments, my medical information,” the South Carolina Republican said.

“The stories I have from some of my former staff are horrible and were a massive invasion of my privacy.

“We’re finding thousands of dollars in invoices that weren’t paid… paperwork that wasn’t filed that was supposed to be filed,” she said, telling the outlet that she was furious when she found out the former employees had left nearly $1 million behind. in money budgeted for your office not spent.

“That money could also have gone to salaries and bonuses, especially if you are a beginner, it is very difficult to survive in DC,” he argued. “It was really outrageous.”

Money that congressional offices do not spend is remitted to the U.S. Treasury Department.

Two former staffers denied several of Mace’s claims, telling the Daily Mail that the congresswoman did not approve hundreds of thousands of dollars in office expenses and that members of Congress’ personal calendars are routinely shared with staff.

“No one hacked their accounts. “She prepared them all,” said one of them.

“This seems to be due to paranoia and trust issues,” another former employee responded.

“She is clearly not well and I hope she gets help.”

The former employee added that the allegation that a device was submerged in water was simply a case of water being spilled on a computer.

As for the congresswoman’s claim that her aides signed her name on documents without permission, the former staffer said Mace directed her staff to use a signature stamp “for administrative tasks that she didn’t want to be bothered with.”

Mace, the first Republican woman elected to the House of Representatives from South Carolina, has served in Congress since 2021 and is running for re-election in November.
