IRONY ALERT: Hillary Slams ‘SECRET MONEY’ in Politics, Calls for ‘ABOLISHMENT’ of Electoral College
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stunned political insiders and operatives across the country this week; abruptly calling for the end of the Electoral College and slamming “secret money” in political elections.
Clinton published an unexpected article in the Atlantic Sunday evening titled, ‘American Democracy is in Crisis.” In it, the former Secretary of State calls for increased transparency behind political donations and fundraisers across the country.
“We need to overturn Citizens United and get secret money out of our politics. And you won’t be surprised to hear that I passionately believe it’s time to abolish the Electoral College,” writes Clinton.
“Democracy may be our birthright as Americans, but it’s not something we can ever take for granted. Every generation has to fight for it, has to push us closer to that more perfect union. That time has come again,” she adds.

Clinton’s comments echo similar statements she made in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election; blaming her disastrous defeat to Donald Trump on the Electoral College, Russia, Facebook, Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, the FBI, James Comey, sexism, racism, the DNC, and more.
