Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost Missouri in the 2016 presidential election by roughly 19 percentage points, at the same time Missouri voters easily passed a measure limiting campaign contributions.

The ballot referendum, Constitutional Amendment 2, was successfully voted for by a nearly 40 percent margin and will substantially limit contributions to candidates, according to state records.

Missouri repealed campaign contribution limitations in 2008, reports Fox2Now, but now donors can only give $2,600 to a candidate and $25,000 to a political party per election.

The concurrent voting results from the Missouri electorate are emblematic. Many people were not pleased that Clinton received huge monetary contributions from big corporations and the world’s elite.

Much of the country also criticized her for the legally dubious practices of the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit corporation.

“When they [the Clinton Foundation] use tax exempt money, you’re not supposed to enrich yourself. It is tax exempt because the money is to be used for something called a ‘charitable purpose,’” philanthropic and charity expert Leslie Lenkowsky previously told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

 

The Clinton Foundation accepted foreign donations on many occasions, including from countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which Clinton admitted fund the terrorist group ISIS.

It was ultimately discovered that the Clinton Foundation ignored virtually all of the “best practices” highly recommended by good governance organizations for public charities.
