Comment on "Axion induced oscillating electric dipole moments" [CL]

In the recent work of Hill [Phys. Rev. D 91, 111702(R) (2015)], it is claimed that the axion electromagnetic anomaly induces an oscillating electron electric dipole moment of frequency $m_a$ and strength $\sim 10^{-32}~e$ cm, in the limit $v/c \to 0$ for the axion field. Here, we demonstrate that a proper treatment of this problem in the lowest order yields no electric dipole moment of the electron in the same limit.
