Hi,

I'd like to know whether I should use "their" or "whose" in the following. And why should I use one over the other?

Those politicians, whose hands seem to be made to take bribes, and their/whose lips to tell lies, should be imprisoned till they die.

I'd appreciate your help.

    Whose, to go with the previous whose.

    It's a shortened version of
    Those politicians, whose hands seem to be made to take bribes, and whose lips seem to be made to tell lies, should be imprisoned till they die.

    Is it correct to rewrite it as follows?

    Those politicians, whose hands seem to be made to take bribes, with their lips to tell lies, should be imprisoned till they die.
