First of all, it was revealed last week how her campaign attacked her GOP opponent for Texas Governor, Greg Abbott (the current Texas Attorney General) for behind handicapped (Erick Erickson at RedState).
Davis can only claim she raised $12 million by including the fundraising totals of “her Senate account, gubernatorial account and a political action committee formed with Battleground Texas that’s dedicated to her election. Battleground Texas was formed to help Texas Democrats, who have not won a statewide election in 20 years.”
It is very important for the media to note that Davis is including Battleground Texas as her money. Back in October, Battleground Texas mocked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for being paralyzed and in a wheelchair.
At the time, Wendy Davis’s campaign said that they could not be held responsible for Battleground Texas, because they were separate entities. Today, Wendy Davis wants to claim Battleground Texas’s campaign cash as her own to hype herself. She can’t have it both ways. If Wendy Davis is going to join herself at the hip with Battleground Texas, she’s going to have to own Battleground Texas’s foot in mouth disease too.Then, yesterday's Dallas Morning News (not known as a liberal bastion), ran a story about how Davis has lied about her background in the race for governor.
Wendy Davis has made her personal story of struggle and success a centerpiece of her campaign to become the first Democrat elected governor of Texas in almost a quarter-century.
While her state Senate filibuster last year captured national attention, it is her biography — a divorced teenage mother living in a trailer who earned her way to Harvard and political achievement — that her team is using to attract voters and boost fundraising.
The basic elements of the narrative are true, but the full story of Davis’ life is more complicated, as often happens when public figures aim to define themselves. In the shorthand version that has developed, some facts have been blurred.
Davis was 21, not 19, when she was divorced. She lived only a few months in the family mobile home while separated from her husband before moving into an apartment with her daughter.
A single mother working two jobs, she met Jeff Davis, a lawyer 13 years older than her, married him and had a second daughter. He paid for her last two years at Texas Christian University and her time at Harvard Law School, and kept their two daughters while she was in Boston. When they divorced in 2005, he was granted parental custody, and the girls stayed with him. Wendy Davis was directed to pay child support.
Hey Wendy, your feet stink!
Another liberal who lies. Why am I not surprised?
