Did Hillary Lie About the Origins of Her 'Speed Limit' Story?
Hillary Clinton is getting called out on her latest attempt to explain away the email scandal that's been hanging over her campaign.
The questionable comment happened today during an interview with Iowa TV station WHO-DM.
She related an illustrative anecdote that she said she heard from a man in Des Moines yesterday having to do with speed limits.
The story was unremarkable in itself, except for the fact that she told it almost three weeks ago when speaking at a Des Moines Register event.
Clinton: "You know it’d be like somebody in the Department of Transportation setting speed limits that had cameras where cars were going down a road, and pictures of license plates were being taken and let’s say the speed limit was 35. And then retroactively the police say that speed limit should’ve been 25, so let’s go back and look at anybody who drove down that road and exceeded 25."
Ed Henry said: "Gives you an idea of one of the reasons why this whole question of trust, being honest has dogged her throughout the campaign."
