Was Hillary Clinton the Original ‘Birther’?

From the article:

Two Republican presidential candidates claim the so-called “birther” movement originated with the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2008. While it’s true that some of her ardent supporters pushed the theory, there is no evidence that Clinton or her campaign had anything to do with it.

More:

Politico, April 22, 2011: The answer lies in Democratic, not Republican politics, and in the bitter, exhausting spring of 2008. At the time, the Democratic presidential primary was slipping away from Hillary Clinton and some of her most passionate supporters grasped for something, anything that would deal a final reversal to Barack Obama.

I goofed and didn’t put this up the other day.

How can you go wrong with an .org that says they are “fact checker”? I’ll probably be using them more if I can remember, lol.
