Look up the Hatch Act it is an act that protects federal employees from being fired for political reasons.
I am not sure if you read the article or not, but they want her to come in now to specify exactly what it is that she is pleading the 5th to.....I don't think that it is a loophole that Monica Goodling will be able to squeeze through. Although it is a federal job, but it is also an appointed position,.....hmmmm?
Maybe they are trying to box her in? I don't think there is precedent here, though. No one from the Justice Dept. has ever even HAD to plead the 5th before. LoL
