WASHINGTON (AP) — A government report concludes that the White House Office of Political Affairs during the George W. Bush administration violated the law by giving political briefings to political employees.

The report issued Monday says the electoral success of the Republican Party and possible strategies for achieving it often were on the agenda at some of 75 political briefings at 20 federal agencies from 2001 to 2007.

The Office of Special Counsel concluded that such briefings should take place away from the federal workplace during non-business hours and that attendance should be completely optional.
