MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold says if Hillary Clinton becomes president it may be a good idea for her "not to have" the Clinton Foundation.
Questions have been swirling about whether Clinton crossed ethical lines during her tenure as secretary of state by talking with people outside the government who had contributed to her family's philanthropy foundation.
Feingold says it's important if Clinton were elected president that there be "no questions" about the group's work.
Feingold sidestepped a question on whether the foundation was a conflict of interest for Clinton when she served as secretary of state. He says he doesn't know how the foundation works or whether there's a problem with it, but "the highest level of scrutiny should be applied to something like that when somebody becomes president."
