It also says Gabbard suffered an economic loss to be proven at trial.

  They ‘Would Love to See a Woman in Office,’ but It’s Not Priority No. 1 WINTERSET, Iowa — Almost exactly three years ago, Leila Schlenker marveled at the crowds at the Women’s March in Des Moines, which drew more than 26,000 people to the grounds of the state capitol and reminded her of the large social protests of the 1960s. Her daughter, now a mother herself, used to roll her eyes when her mom would talk about the importance of fighting for issues like abortion rights and equal pay. But Ms. Schlenker has seen how the current political moment has convinced her daughter that her rights could be taken away, and that sexism remains a force in both of their lives.

Gabbard, a dark-horse candidate who represents Hawaii, was on the campaign trail Wednesday and unavailable for comment about the suit, according to her law firm, Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht LLP.

"Although Rep. Gabbard's presidential campaign continues to gain momentum, she has seen her political and personal reputation smeared and her candidacy intentionally damaged by Clinton's malicious and demonstrably false remarks," Brian Dunne, a partner at the law firm, said in a statement.

Dunne added that Clinton had exhibited a "personal hostility" toward Gabbard last fall, and the former secretary of state "resorted to a damaging whisper campaign founded on lies, and when presented with the opportunity to retract her damaging remarks, she refused."

Clinton's team did not immediately comment on the lawsuit.

Clinton made her comments during a podcast appearance on "Campaign HQ" with David Plouffe. At the time, she did not identify the current Democratic candidate whom she was referring to, but also said Jill Stein was a "Russian asset" as a third-party candidate in the 2016 presidential election.

The Mueller report and congressional investigations have shown that Russia's interference in the 2016 election included bolstering Stein's run.

Later, when asked if Clinton was referring to Gabbard, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said, "If the nesting doll fits... ." He subsequently tweeted that Clinton was referring to the Republican Party grooming Gabbard, not Russians.

Gabbard seized on Clinton's remark, accusing her in a tweet of being the "queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long."
