The anti-war group Code Pink, headed by activist Medea Benjamin, has dumped their support for Hillary Clinton, citing abandonment by the candidate.

Leaders of the antiwar group Code Pink say they won't support Hillary Clinton for president and are targeting Democrats in Congress who have failed to heed the organization's call for an end to the Iraq war.

The mostly female group — known for disrupting congressional hearings while wearing pink T-shirts and tiaras — has applied for a new tax status that allows political work for its campaigns against Democrats as well as Republicans, Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin told the Washington Times.

"We felt betrayed by the very people we helped put into office," she said. "We have a particular break with the leadership of the Democratic Party.

"We are disgusted with all of them."

Code Pink is mostly a single issue group. It will be interesting to see how much this affects the Clinton campaign.
