Three Ohio high school students earned a visit from the Department of Homeland Security after they created a super PAC they named "Killary Clinton."

They also had some explaining to do to their principal.

The three juniors at the school in Pataskala, Ohio, outside Columbus, created the super PAC after being inspired by a government class lesson and by a fellow student who had created a PAC he called "Better America for Tomorrow" that he plans to use to raise money for Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio, Cleveland.com reports

The three honor-roll students, who were not named, simply wanted a clever name for their super PAC, so they chose a play on the name of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, whom they do not want to win the 2016 general election.

"We just did it for the heck of it," one of the PAC's creators told Cleveland.com. "[W]e thought it was cool so we all talked about it."

But when the students filed with the Federal Elections Commission, it prompted a visit from Homeland Security, which is over the Secret Service. They also were questioned by the school's principal over whether they had violated the district's code of conduct.

Apparently, they are not in trouble with the feds or the school district, but plan to disband the super PAC.

"We all try to be good students and this is not reflecting positively on us, so I hope you can understand," one student said.
