Clinton Pays Off Remaining 2008 Campaign Debt

More than four years after Hillary Clinton lost the Democratic nomination for president, her 2008 presidential campaign is finally debt-free, Politico reports.

CNN: "A federal law known as the Hatch Act prohibited Clinton and other federal government employees from personally soliciting or accepting political contributions. The law does allow others to raise funds on Clinton's behalf, without her direct involvement. Former President Bill Clinton periodically sent out fundraising appeals to his wife's campaign email list to help retire her debt."
