Hillary Gets Woman’s Vote Wrong – Again!

Once again in her speech last night Hillary made a now familiar claim, this time using her own mother as the foil:

“My mother was born before women could vote. But in this election my daughter got to vote for her mother for president.”

And once again (and for the third time) Mrs. Clinton ignores the obdurate fact that several states gave women the vote before the 19th amendment was passed in 1920.

Including her mother’s native state of Illinois, which gave women suffrage in 1913, six years before Mrs. Rodham was born — in 1919.
