Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday continued to push her debunked claim that tens of thousands of Wisconsin voters weren't able to vote in the 2016 election because of voter suppression.
Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, appeared at an event in Portland, Ore., to promote their new book, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage And Resilience. The event's moderator asked Clinton about the 2016 presidential election, noting that she had "probably noticed there was some shocking hi-jinks during the last election."
In answering, Clinton claimed that voter suppression occurred in multiple states, including Wisconsin.
"Wisconsin is a great example of where tens of thousands of people were not able to vote, so we know that happened and we have to keep fighting it and we have to keep putting it on the front burner," Clinton said.
Clinton's claims of voter suppression in Wisconsin have varied dramatically over the last several years, but that has not stopped PolitiFact from rating them "mostly false" and "pants on fire." In May 2017, Clinton claimed, "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 rated the claim "mostly false" and noted the figure came from Democratic super PAC Priorities USA.
