Um, what?

Also, nobody really voted “to deny contraception.” Hobby Lobby employees are still able to purchase all forms of legal birth control, including abortifacients, on their own.

Of course, Rep. Polis has deleted his tweet, but Twitchy has saved it for posterity:

Here’s his new and improved version:

Unfortunately, that is also incorrect. There are six men on the U.S. Supreme Court. One of those men, Stephen Breyer, joined in almost all of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dissent.

Keep on trying, Rep. Polis! We’re sure you’ll get it right eventually.

Update:

Polis has now deleted his second erroneous tweet. Here’s his third attempt:

He’s sticking with the misleading “voted to deny contraception” formulation and left out Breyer. But, hey, at least he finally used correct numbers. Hooray!

Editor’s note: We made a minor edit to this post for clarity.
