Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton received the lowest possible grade from fact-checker PolitiFact for repeating a claim that fact-checkers had already heavily criticized.

Clinton first claimed in May 2017, “The best estimate is that 200,000 people in Wisconsin were either denied or chilled in their efforts to vote” in the 2016 presidential election. PolitiFact ruled that claim was mostly false, noting that the estimate came from a Democratic PAC and that most experts say it’s impossible to tell how much of Wisconsin’s low turnout was attributable to voter ID laws and how much was due to low enthusiasm for Clinton and Donald Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

But the former secretary of state ratcheted up her rhetoric earlier this year. “I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act,” she said in a March speech, referring to the 2013 Supreme Court decision Shelby County v. Holder, which struck down a part of the Voting Rights Act that subjected certain states to extra federal scrutiny. “It made a difference in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40,000 and 80,000 people were turned away from the polls because of the color of their skin, because of their age, because of whatever excuse could be made up to stop a fellow American citizen from voting.”

The report notes that Clinton “combined two false claims” in her speech on Tuesday, and PolitiFact has slammed her for it. CLICK HERE to read more.  See video clip from Clinton’s speech below:
