Obit­u­ary: Don’t vote for Hil­lary

RUNNEMEDE — An Amer­i­can woman has used her obit­u­ary to make a fi­nal re­quest to friends and fam­ily: Please don’t vote for Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton for pres­i­dent.

Elaine Fydrych’s hus­band said she was a reg­is­tered Demo­crat and not “a po­lit­i­cal per­son.”

But he said she grew to strongly dis­like Clin­ton af­ter the deadly 2012 at­tacks in Beng­hazi and be­lieved Clin­ton’s han­dling of the mat­ter as sec­re­tary of state was “ter­ri­ble.”

A bi­par­ti­san re­port on the Beng­hazi at­tack spread blame among the State Depart­ment, the mil­i­tary and US in­tel­li­gence but didn’t name Clin­ton.

Joe Fydrych, of Runnemede, said his 63-year-old wife told him a few weeks be­fore she died on 13 Au­gust of her plan for her obit­u­ary. She told him it was up to him whether to in­clude the line about Clin­ton, but he said he felt he had to honor his wife’s wishes.

The last line of her obit­u­ary says: “Elaine re­quests, ‘In lieu of flow­ers, please do not vote for Hil­lary Clin­ton.’”
