Hillary's brothers could cause major problems for her presidential campaign.

Interesting side note is that Tony was married to Barbara Boxer's daughter with whom he had a son.

Over the years, the pair has been at the center of multiple controversies for their business dealings and Republicans are already using them to attack Clinton. One aide for a rival 2016 campaign told Business Insider that Clinton's brothers will definitely cause issues for her White House bid.

"Will they be a problem? Yes. They underscore everything that people fear and hate about the Clintons," the aide said. "They're essentially the id of Bill and Hillary Clinton. A bunch of money-grubbing and opportunistic hillbillies with no sense of ethics, decency, or even legality."

Indeed, while Hugh Rodham has yet to make headlines this cycle, last weekend, the New York Times published a story delving into Clinton's youngest brother, Tony Rodham. The paper reported he had repeatedly tried to profit from his connection to the former first family.

"The connections to the Clintons have given Mr. Rodham, a self-described 'facilitator,' a unique appeal and a range of opportunities," The Times' Steve Eder wrote. "But his business dealings have often invited public scrutiny and uncomfortable questions for the Clintons."

1. This stuff is all going to be tied in with the Clinton Foundation.

It's going to be a mess.

13. I hear that her dog will be a problem, too.

And her gardener. And her cook. Not to mention her hair stylist. Or the boy who sat next to her when Hill was in the 3rd grade.

Oh, the humanity.

16. Oh Lord!

Embarassing brothers are a staple item in presidential politics. This one has wiskers and besides Boxer's daughter divorced him years ago. Keep it current

18. Thumbing their noses at the law runs in the family.

Nixon would be proud.





We could possibly "win" the distinction of having the first husband/wife presidents to have both been impeached. Nixon was smart enough to resign before getting to that point.
