Assembly Hansen, my opponent in this election campaign, has accused me of using money from the public coffers for personal vacations and other private expenses. Hansen has no right to make such accusations since the record shows that she hired her own daughter at a handsome salary to serve as a legislative aide.
Which of the following is the most serious weakness of the argument above?

A. It assumes that anything that Hansen has done is alright.
B. It confuses legality with ethical propriety.
C. It assumes that Hansen's actions would be indictable under current law.
D. It fails to respond to the charges made by Hansen.
E. It implies that Hansen should be held responsible for questionable actions by members of her family.

I am confused between D and E

Its D.
E implies about Hansen and don't implicate anything about charges made by him.To weaken the argument we should attack the conclusion.
Hansen being held responsible is of no use since the argument is questioning charges made by hansen on his opponent.

this question somehow is funny because A,C,E use the key words which help to eliminate those choices.

this is a common pattern in gmat, test takers should know this. That is, a second person will fail to respond to what is addressed by the first person.
