The U.S. Secret Service special agent in charge of the Denver district is in the middle of a rare public controversy.

The Washington Examiner, owned by Colorado’s own Philip Anschutz, reported that agent Kerry O’Grady made a Facebook post in October that appeared to cast doubt on her commitment to the new president.

“As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act. So I keep quiet and skirt the median. To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position …,” she allegedly wrote on Facebook, according to the Examiner.

“But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here. Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.”

The Secret Service is aware of the comments but has made no comment on its actions, the Washington Post reported.

In an extended interview with the Examiner, O’Grady reportedly said that she wasn’t implying she would not protect Trump.

She reportedly said that she deleted the post after a couple days of reflection, is proud of her job and would “serve the office of the president.”
