(KSL News) -- Ogden's police chief may be in hot water because he is running for the state legislature.

The US Office of Special Council is now reviewing if Jon Greiner is eligible to run for office while remaining in his post as chief under provisions of the Hatch act.

The act states state and local employees cannot run as partisan candidates if their organizations receives any federal funding. Greinier is running as Republican -- but says since his salary is paid by the city he is doing nothing wrong.

If found in violation of the act, Greinier will either have to resign as chief, drop out of the race, or pay two years salary to the federal government.
