Hillary's Preferential Treatment of Son-in-law Under Scrutiny By DC Watchdog

Last week, The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust put Hillary Clinton in a “league of her own” when it comes to ethics violations.

“Elected officials are sent to Washington to follow and uphold the law and so they need to be held to the highest standard of ethics.  Even the appearance of impropriety can quickly erode public trust, and Mrs. Clinton is in a league of her own” said Matthew G. Whitaker, FACT executive director.  “We will continue to vigorously hold the lantern over unethical behavior so that we have a government that serves the public’s interest, not the self-interests of leaders who think they are beyond reproach.”

While Clinton’s misuse of State Department emails have made the most headlines, her preferential treatment of her son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky is also disconcerting, according to FACT’s Executive Director Matthew Whitaker. On Fox News Monday morning, he expanded upon the new revelation that Clinton sought favors from State for an investment group Mezvinsky had an interest in:

Her son-in-law received an email from a Goldman Sachs associate that had a representative invested in a company that had a business matter that the State Department is considering regarding deep sea mining. The business associate asked the son-in-law to forward an email. The son-in-law forwards it to Secretary of State Clinton and she forwards it to the State Department for folks to follow up on. Average everyday citizens don't get that kind of access or the treatment he received.”

Clinton already has trust issues with the public. Demonstrating that she thinks she’s above the law will not help that image.
