Hillary Clinton is caught in another lie — a whopper she told the Democratic National Convention in her nationally televised acceptance speech last week. The Democratic presidential candidate said that she went "door to door" in New Bedford, Mass., to find children who were not in school.

"I remember meeting a young girl in a wheelchair on the small back porch of her house," Clinton said. "She told me how badly she wanted to go to school — it just didn’t seem possible in those days."

But the Democrat who was mayor of New Bedford back in 1973, when Hillary supposedly met the disabled girl, says it couldn't be true.

"It's not true," former Mayor Jack Markey told the Boston Herald. "I'm even a Democrat, but the truth is the truth."

The Herald report continues:

"We would take handicapped kids in a small van to schools that could take them," said Markey, who served on a local board that helped disabled children before he was elected mayor in 1971. "I would have been aware of a child needing help to go to school. The truth is we had access." ...

Joseph Silva, a retired superintendent of New Bedford Schools and principal of Ingraham Elementary School when the Children's Defense Fund investigators combed through the city in 1973, said the girl in Clinton's story would have had the option of being transported to an accessible school.

"Kids weren't left to flounder," Silva said. "That's been historically the culture in New Bedford that the needs that children had were met in whatever ways necessary."

Hillary's latest lie joins a big collection of phony tales of her background including her claim to have been named after Sir Edmond Hilary who climbed Mt. Everest four years after her birth.

Dick Morris is author of the book "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary" with Eileen McGann, which is the No. 1 nonfiction book in the United States, based on Amazon.com ratings, and has debuted at No. 4 on the Aug. 7 New York Times nonfiction list.
