Hillary Clinton Reportedly Used Campaign Cash to Fund Book Tour

Hey Hills – What happened?

In potential violation of FEC rules, Hillary Clinton reportedly sent nearly $150,000 in leftover campaign cash to a limited liability company organizing her book tour and speaking engagements.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that after her presidential campaign began to wind down, payments were made from Hillary for America to ZFS Holdings LLC.

The payments were identified as ‘rent,’ but a 2016 interview in the Guardian shows an aide to the former Secretary of State explaining that “ZFS was set up when Secretary Clinton left the State Department as an entity to manage her book and speaking income.”


The FEC defines several ways in which a campaign can use leftover cash, none of which include using it for personal income purposes.

According to Cleta Mitchell, a campaign finance lawyer, the funds need to be used for purposes specifically involving winding down the failed campaign effort.

The first transaction, according to the report, is for $32,929.28 was made on May 4, 2017, a good six months after Donald Trump defeated Clinton in historically embarrassing fashion.


“Personal use is illegal under federal campaign finance law,” Mitchell said. “There are a number of questions that need to be answered to ensure that the campaign is using leftover campaign funds for a legally, permissible purpose.”

If Clinton violated FEC rules by using the campaign cash for personal use, she may run into some serious legal issues.

“Other than the prohibition on personal use, there are few limitations,” Mitchell explained. “Punishments for violating the prohibition on personal use range from substantial fines to possible prison time.”


Considering the national media was so in-depth in reporting possible campaign violations over Trump’s lawyer paying off Stormy Daniels, we have to assume they’ll be just as eager to jump on this story.

Yea, maybe not.
