Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton earned ‘Four Pinocchios’ from Washington Post fact checkers Wednesday; with the left-leaning newspaper slamming her recent claim she lost Wisconsin in the 2016 election due to “voter suppression.”
“Clinton made several factual errors, offered questionable claims about a couple of studies, and ended up giving a misleading assessment of her loss,” writes the Post. “Wrong on multiple levels, seriously misleading and worth a cumulative Four Pinocchios.”

Clinton was speaking in Selma, Alabama when she made the bizarre claim; saying “I was the first person who ran for president without the protection of the Voting Rights Act, and I will tell you, it makes a really big difference.”
“It made a difference in Wisconsin, where the best studies that have been done said somewhere between 40 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,” she added.
