Hillary Clinton is setting off on a road she hopes will take her to the White House. But while Hillary is out pursuing power she's left other women behind. As a lawyer, Hillary defended sex offenders, laughing after her client fooled a polygraph to escape accusations of assaulting a 12 year-old girl. As First Lady, Hillary viciously attacked victims of her husband's advances, calling them Looney Tunes and trailer trash. Hillary paid women on her Senate staff just 72 cents for every dollar paid to men.

Hillary only helps herself, not women. Paid for by Stop Hillary PAC. Not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee. www.StopHillaryPAC.org.
