Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator whose filibuster for abortion rights made her a Democratic superstar and launched her campaign for governor, has admitted to the Dallas Morning News that she lied about key events in her life, including her first divorce. Davis may even have lied under oath, testifying in a federal lawsuit over redistricting that “I got divorced by the time I was 19 years old,” when in fact she was divorced at age 21.
Other missing details have included: her second husband paid her way through law school and she divorced him the day after the last payment was made; her ex-husband accused her in initial court filings of adultery, and was awarded custody of their two daughters; and she first ran for city council in Fort Worth as a Republican.
What I want to know is: Will NBC News, NPR, and other mouthpieces for Democrats report on this at all? They spent over a week plugging her as a hero to the pro-abortion crowd and the Next Big Thing in Texas (and national) politics. Obviously that’s a rhetorical question since we know that they won’t.
Update 1/21: Now, both she and her supporters are blaming her opponent for the lies that SHE told! Instead, she attacks the Republican candidate with a series of tweets; here are two of them:
These attacks show that Greg Abbott’s completely out of touch with the struggles that I faced and so many Texans face. (3/4)
Like so many Texans, I’m proud of where I came from and proud of what I’ve been able to achieve through hard work and perseverance. (4/4)
What the Breitbart story should have pointed out, but didn’t, is the ultimate irony of Wendy Davis’ hypocrisy: Abbott is paralyzed from the waist down and has been confined to a wheel chair for the last 30-years. Yeah, Wendy, he certainly wouldn’t know anything about the struggles of life and what sort of hard work it takes to persevere and rise to the position of Texas Attorney General. You stupid, lying, hypocritical bitch.
Abbott has been in a wheel chair since he was 26-years-old after a tree fell on him while running and paralyzed him from the waist down.
