RNC Co-Chair Reignites Bill Clinton Sex Assault Claims On Convention Stage

In a red-meat speech Tuesday evening at the Republican National Convention, RNC co-chair Sharon Day slammed “crooked Hillary” Clinton for what she said were “vicious” attacks on the women who accused her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of sexual assault.

Speaking directly to the presumptive Democratic nominee, Day said, “As first lady, you viciously attacked the character of women who were sexually abused at the hands of your husband!”

The applause line didn’t quite land. But Day was undeterred, going on to accuse Clinton of fostering a gender wage gap among her own staffers.

That claim, which was first circulated by the conservative blog Free Beacon in 2015, was rated “mostly false” by Politifact.
