Woman's dying wish: Don't vote for Hillary Clinton

A woman from New Jersey has shared with the world an unusual dying wish – a plea for people not to vote for Hillary Clinton in the upcoming United States presidential election.

The plea was made in her obituary to friends and family.

Elaine Fydrych's husband said Wednesday she was a registered Democrat and not "a political person". But he said she grew to strongly dislike Ms Clinton after the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi and believed Ms Clinton's handling of the matter as Secretary of State was "terrible".

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

Joe Fydrych, of Runnemede, said his 63-year-old wife told him a few weeks before she died on August 13 of her plan for her obituary.

She told him it was up to him whether to include the line about Ms Clinton, but he said he felt he had to honour his wife's wishes.

The last line of her obituary reads: "Elaine requests, in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton."
