Not even Left-leaning PolitiFact can cover for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi this time. Pelosi’s characterization of the Supreme Court as “five guys who start determining what contraceptions are legal” pegged the Truth-O-Meter™ at “False.”

“Several readers asked us to scrutinize whether Pelosi was right to say that the Supreme Court was deciding which contraception methods are legal, rather than whether some corporations must pay for them through their employees’ health insurance plans,” wrote PolitiFact. And?

We can eliminate any reader suspense by sharing the response Pelosi’s office sent PolitiFact after we inquired: “She misspoke,” spokesman Drew Hammill acknowledged. “Obviously the impact of the court’s decision is not to make these four contraceptive methods illegal – i.e. no longer allowed to be sold.”

Obviously.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly led the effort calling out Pelosi.
