Hillary wins! Named most corrupt politician of 2015
She's in a dead heat with Trump, loses to several Republicans in the polls, and can't seem to shake that pesky Bernie Sanders, but nevermind the bad news, it's time to score a win for Hillary: The nonpartisan watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) named Hillary Clinton at the top of it's worst ethics violators for 2015!

The murder, the error, and the terror (an introduction to Israeli Newspeak) – Mondoweiss
