The "inwhich" phenomenon has been commented on frequently, but in my experience it's mainly confined to unpracticed writing of the freshman comp sort and is rarely heard in adult speech.

But few weeks back Mr. Bob Kunst, who looks to be about 50 and is President of a group called "Hillary Now," responded as follows to a question from Fox News about whether "controversy" might weaken a presidential campaign by Mrs. Clinton :

" We see any controversy as an asset in which we'll be able to get more people out to vote."

He meant "by which."
