Clinton said at the memorial service that Byrd's obituaries have speculated what it meant he was in the KKK.

"I'll tell you what it means. He was a country boy from the hills and hollers of West Virginia, he was trying to get elected," Clinton said. "And maybe he did something he shouldn't have done, and he spent the rest of his life making it up. And that's what a good person does."
