Whoops: Hillary Flubs Name of Civil Rights Icon


Speaking at the annual American Bar Association's dinner in San Francisco Monday night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a verbal gaffe worthy of President George W. Bush.

Meaning to praise civil right icon Medgar Evers, Clinton for some reason told a story about a guy named Medgar Evans.

"In 1963, in Jackson, Mississippi, John stepped between angry protesters and armed police to prevent a potential massacre after the murder of Medgar Evans," said Clinton while speaking about one of her early mentors, lawyer John Doar.


An outspoken civil rights advocate, Evers was murdered on June 12, 1963, in front of his home.
