Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

It began featuring liberal presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, in unflattering photos. Conservative media site Drudge Report is having a ball. Those would usually accompany a negative cover story about her. Now, the photos have become downright cartoonish. They caricature both her age and her supposed self-absorption.
