Irony of ironies: Clinton calls for help with personal debt

I couldn't believe my eyes when I read this CNN.com headline : "Clinton wants help with her campaign debt". Apparently Clinton is over $20 million in debt because she had to donate heavily to her own campaign and is now asking supporters to lend a hand to help her recover before the late August deadline. In a video appeal, Clinton's campaign wrote:

“By helping us pay off our campaign debt, you’re not just helping Hillary elect a Democratic president and grow our majority in Congress. You’re making it possible for her to work as hard as she can on the issues we care about.”

Are you shitting me?
