Wendy Davis: My Opponent the Paraplegic Has Not Walked a Day in My Shoes

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:45 pm

Wendy Davis — recently profiled as someone who a) asked her husband to raise her children because “it’s not a good time for me right now”; b) left her husband the day after he paid the last installment on her student loan; and c) divorced her husband after adultery accusations — has kinda put her foot (Mizuno Wave Rider and all five toes) in her mouth:

Wendy Davis is under fire following a Dallas Morning News report that found a number of factual discrepancies in the personal narrative she has made a centerpiece of her long-shot campaign for Texas governor.

Davis, who is quoted multiple times in the article, issued a statement after its publication suggesting that her Republican opponent, Greg Abbott, was behind the “attacks.”

Davis said that for Abbott, who has been a paraplegic for nearly three decades, to question her story proves that he “hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.”

Her actual statement is generic but the comment, read in context, is clearly intended for Abbott. I don’t see why we should be any more charitable to Davis than Democrats would be to a Republican in an identical situation.

Davis plans future speeches explaining that Abbott is not a “stand-up guy” and lacks the ability to “think on his feet.”

It’s OK, Wendy. You’re in good company:

  18. She was never a single mom. The guy who first knocked her up married her while she was still pregnant. I got a little queasy reading about her, so I don’t know if she took a break as a divorced mom before marrying the sucker who cashed in his 401(k) to send her to Harvard Law.

  22. I think this was a mistake by the Davis campaign but I don’t think it was unintended. My guess is the campaign wants to remind Texans that Abbott is disabled, perhaps because they think it will make some voters doubt his ability to work hard or make him appear weak.

    I don’t think it will work but it does show how desperate they are.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  23. She seems quite LIB-CLASSY. Her 2 daughters, born of her own WOMB, were given to her EX-HUSBAND as part of the WAR ON WYMYN DYVORCE settlement. The HUSBAND who helped her and paid for her EDUCATION, was awarded custody of both “THEIR” daughter, and the OTHER EX-HYSBANDS Daughter. That sounds logical/normal,reasonable and MORAL to YOU?????

  32. Umm, the problem with being Bidenesque is, Biden was repeatedly elected to the Senate and then was promoted to VP…

    But as said above, to lose custody of a child to the stepfather, a man with no biological ties to the child, seems to be pretty condemning. She was a Harvard law grad at that and presumably should have had the brains and ability to make a good living to support her children.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  33. She doubtlessly did the kids a favor, but it’s nothing in hers.

    nk (dbc370)

  34. If the lovely Mrs Davis really believed that the best way to give her daughters “a better life and a better future” was to give custody of them to her ex-husband, perhaps she was setting the example for Texans to think that the best way to give themselves “a better life and a better future” would be for them to give custody of their state government to someone other than Mrs Davis.

  35. ‘Twasn’t so long ago that we thought that another Texan would make a fine candidate, right up until he opened his mouth. Should we blame Tex-Mex food?

    The Dana who supported Rick Perry (3e4784)

  36. Abortion Barbie said that she “was a vibrant part of contributing to our family finances from the time I graduated to the time we separated in 2003.” OK, she was graduated from Harvard Law School in May of 1993, and admitted to the Texas state bar in November. From Wikipedia:

    Early in her law career Davis served in a federal clerkship under U.S. District Judge Jerry Buchmeyer. In 1994, she joined the Fort Worth office of Haynes & Boone and began practicing specialized litigation. She later became part owner of Safeco Title Co., the title company that her ex-husband Jeff Davis founded.

    Yet, according to the first article cited, Mrs Davis was ordered to pay $1,200 per month in child support. $14,400 per year in child support when she was a Harvard-educated attorney who had been practicing law for almost ten years.

    Were I to speculate — not that I would ever do such a thing! — I’d guess that the long-suffering Mr Davis was willing to accept almost anything just to make her go away.

    The Dana who read the article (3e4784)

  37. With all of the lawyers frequenting this fine site, there ought to be someone who could answer this question: would y’all be surprised if you had a divorcing client of Mrs Davis’ degrees and profession who got hit for child support payments of just $1200 per month.

    The Dana who isn't an attorney (3e4784)

  38. Our esteemed host wrote:

    Her actual statement is generic but the comment, read in context, is clearly intended for Abbott. I don’t see why we should be any more charitable to Davis than Democrats would be to a Republican in an identical situation.

    Perhaps it is an escape valve that it was a generic comment, but shouldn’t we expect that a Harvard-edumacated attorney, who was graduated cum laude, and who has already said that she needed to “tighten” up her language, would understand that you don’t put things that way when your opponent is in a wheelchair?

    Could be a low-level staffer in Cincinnati who wrote that, of course.

    The Dana who isn't impressed (3e4784)

  39. No, Dana, not at all. The divorce statutes require a provision for periodic, cash, child support and if it is within the statutory guidelines and not unconscionable the judge will accept it. That does not mean the parents have not made additional arrangements, the details of which are not on the record to protect the privacy of the family’s finances. It could include the custodial parent getting the family residence, the lion’s share of the marital assets including savings and retirement accounts, health insurance for the children, a college trust fund of sorts, etc.

    But he has to be a Republican shill, just like everyone who said a word against Stalin, or even didn’t do that in 1937 was either a British or a Japanese spy.

    Sammy Finkelman (4227f2)

  43. “would y’all be surprised if you had a divorcing client of Mrs Davis’ degrees and profession who got hit for child support payments of just $1200 per month.”

    The Dana who isn’t an attorney – You just don’t understand Wendy’s struggles.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  44. Other interesting facts about Wendy Davis:

    Wendy Davis ran for the Forth Worth City Council in 1996, and lost, (by 90 votes) and then sued the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, American Broadcasting Company, and their ower at the time, the Disney Company, for biased coverage saying it led to her defeat and caused injury to her physical and mental health”.

    The law suit was dismissed on First Amendment free speech grounds. You would think a Harvard Law School graduate would have known that would happen.

    She had made an issue of not being offered a job by a law firm that represented the Fort worth zoo, and the Bass family, because she had opposed the zoo’s plan to build a parking lot where there was then green space. She said the Bass family wanted the parking lot.

    She was finally elected in 1999.

    At that time she was a Republican, or at least she voted in Republican Party primaries (1996, 1998 and 2006.)

    She has claimed that was because she liked Republican Congresswoman Kay Granger and also wanted to vote on judicial nominees.

    She ran as a Democrat for the Texas Senate in 2008.

    http://www.texastribune.org/2013/09/01/spotlight-democrats-big-hope/

    “When I first put my hat in the ring, several very tried and true and loyal Democratic activists from our community said, “What? She’s not a Democrat. She’s a Republican,” Davis recalled. “I took that as a compliment, you know, that people didn’t necessarily know what my ideology might be because I wasn’t driven by that.”

    Sammy Finkelman (4227f2)

  45. And in her law firm she’s partners now with Gov. Rick Perry’s former chief of staff, Brian Newby, now a registered lobbyist.

    She’s also made up with Sid Bass, who it seems used to be a punching bag for her – he gave her $200,000 in the last two years, making him one of her biggest donors.

    Comment by nk (dbc370) — 1/21/2014 @ 8:11 pm

    I got a little queasy reading about her, so I don’t know if she took a break as a divorced mom before marrying the sucker who cashed in his 401(k) to send her to Harvard Law.

    She did take a break as a divorced mother, but she was already seeing her future second husband before the divorce from the first one became final on May 22, 1984, almost a week after her 21st birthday. But she didn’t marry him until May 30, 1987, and her second daughter was born in September, 1988, just over six years after the first one.

    Her husband paid for her last two years of college and her 3 years at Harvard Law school.

    She used to claim that she had paid for TCU (last 2 years of college) and Harvard with scholarship money and by working as a single mother, while actually she was married at the time.

    She had also claimed “I got divorced by the time I was 19 years old” but the facts are, per Wikipedia, material in brackets mine:

    During high school, in May 1980, [around her 17th birthday] she moved in with her boyfriend, Frank Underwood, a construction worker, when she was 17.[10][11] In May 1981, [circa 18th birthday] Russell graduated from Richland High School in North Richland Hills, Texas. She became pregnant with her first child, Amber.[10][11] On January 24, 1982, when she was 18, Russell married Underwood in response to the pregnancy.[10] In the late summer of 1982, after Russell had turned 19, she gave birth to Amber, her first daughter.[10] In December 1983, Russell filed for divorce when she was 20.[10] On May 22, 1984, Russell’s divorce from Underwood became official, when she was 21 years old

    Although the older daughter continued to live with her step-father and sister, her mother didn’t lose cusody of her, since she was already over 18. In fact she was over 21 at the time the divorce became final.

    Wendy Davis had moved out of the marital home in 2003, when her older daughter was either 18 or 19. So she essentially abandoned the children, although now she’s quite close to them, now that they’re grown up and everything you could say.

    She has also claimed to have lived in a trailer, but that was were she lived with her first husband, or possibly for a very short period of time till her mother could make room for her after she moved out (she took the trailoer with her??)

    Comment by The Dana who read the article

    Were I to speculate…I’d guess that the long-suffering Mr Davis was willing to accept almost anything just to make her go away.

    He was probably more interesterd in not having to pay child support himself, which is avoided by having custody.

  48. Re: gary gulrud @ 48 You know Sam, you might try reading other commenter’s contributions like the one at 41

    I did read it. Comment 41 responds to The Dana who isn’t an attorney‘s question @ 39. I was talking about The Dana’s who read the article‘s speculation @38.

    Comment 41 doesn’t say anything to the point as to why the child support was so low, or in fact if it was high or low. Except that maybe that that a divorce might require some child support, but I didn’t read it that way.

    So the question is still open as to why they agreed on such an amount. Not why the judge approved it. nk said it was not surprising because a judge would approve anything, and it doesn’t have to relate to income levels. (and also other financial arrangements not on the public record might exist.)

    The Dana Who Read the Article’s question, I think, actually presupposes it was agreed to between the two of them, and speculates as to why Jeff Davis agreed to it.

    I said, as far as child support is concerned, Jeff Davis’ main interest might have been not to have to pay any himself.

    ——————————

    I read more on some oher things. It must be that her first husband moved out of the trailer (in the second marriage she moved out. The time she spent in the trailer with a child was in the period after he moved out. The trailer itself may have been moved to a home owned by her mother, or her father (based on something I read)

    But she testified in a federal lawsuit over redistricting, that “I had a baby. I got divorced by the time I was 19 years old. After I got divorced, I lived in a mobile home park in southeast Fort Worth.”

    This was untrue. She continued living in the mobile home for a while after they separated but before she filed for divorce – if that’s the correct version. And she only got divorced right after her 21st birthday.

    It might not be perjury because this is not material, except it gave her some more moral authority for what she subsequently said, which itself might very well not be true, but is probably too debateable to be considered perjury.

    ————–

    Also, another fact: During the whole time she was attending Harvard Law School, 1990-1993, she was in Boston, and the children stayed with their father in Ft. Worth. The youngest was around her second birthday when she started law school.

    Her husband not only paid for her law school (with a loan) – he also paid the rent for her apartment in Boston.

  50. He was probably more interesterd in not having to pay child support himself, which is avoided by having custody.

    in a word all too full of inane statements, this one still stands out like sore thumb…

    if you have actual *physical* custody of the children, you’re responsible for *all* their expenses, no matter what they may be, as opposed to the monthly flat rate of child support. that includes maintaining the expense of a home: mortgage, taxes, utilities as well as clothes, food, etc for the kids, plus all the time you spend tending to them.

    in short, it is, absent a huge payment being set, (and i can’t see $1400/month being excessive for a lawyer, even a hack like Strawberry Barbie) clear that she took the easier of the two positions.

    cutting a check is obviously less w*rk than raising kids.

    if you have actual *physical* custody of the children, you’re responsible for *all* their expenses, no matter what they may be, as opposed to the monthly flat rate of child support.

    That might be cheaper than the chlld support you are ordered to pay.

    in short, it is, absent a huge payment being set, (and i can’t see $1400/month being excessive for a lawyer, even a hack like Strawberry Barbie) clear that she took the easier of the two positions.

    Yes, because the child support was low. But a man with high assets and income might fear it would be set high, higher than the actual amount he might spend, and he also gets to make the decisions on what to spend it on, and to see them whenever he wants to.

    So it would be a good deal for him, especially with her kicking in a little bit, too.

    cutting a check is obviously less w*rk than raising kids.

    A man can delegate much of this to a second woman.

    Sammy Finkelman (4227f2)

  54. “That might be cheaper than the chlld support you are ordered to pay.”

    Sammy – Or it might not.

    Why speculate on motives not in evidence Sammy? Ultimately a Judge has to sign off on the arrangements. The fact that she was required to pay signals she was independent and had her own significant source of income. Financial disclosures would have been filed with the court by both parties.

    No.

    If not, why do you twist yourself in nonsensical knots to justify her faux bio.?

    Did I do that? I don’t think so. Where does it even look like I’m doing that?

    The only thing is you have to be careful about what parts are wrong, or how wrong it is.

    And that some things may not imply that much by themselves.

    It could very well be true she never stood a chance of getting custody, but there are reasons for a man to file for custody even if he doesn’t really want it, which is not say this is the case here.

    There are separate facts that support bad inferences. Her second husband did mention adultery in his initial divorce filing, and she left their home.

    But I thought it wouldn’t require extreme tiredness from litigation to settle for a small child support payment.

    Sammy Finkelman (4227f2)

  57. It also seems there was a Safeco Title insurance company in Dallas. That’s not made up.

    It’s not clear when and how she got to own part of it, and when it was sold.

    1. There is an obituary of a founder of a title company in Texas, who eventually owned one called Safeco: (Wikipedia says Jeffry Davis founded a company called Safeco, which might not be the same one)

    http://www.dallasnews.com/obituary-headlines/20120407-norma-lea-beasley-attorney-who-co-founded-dallas-land-title-company-dies-at-80.ece

    The obituary says that Safeco Land Title of Dallas was sold in 2001, but not to whom.

    2. http://blogs.findlaw.com/strategist/2013/07/wendy-davis-from-single-mom-waitress-to-harvard-to-governor.html which is not updated or corrected and still has the old story of her having been already divorced at the age of 19 in 1982, says she became part owner of Safeco in 1999, which was later was acquired by Republic Title.

    But an article from 2004…

    http://www.inman.com/2004/06/29/firstam-expands-texas-title-services/

    says Jeff Davis had been Safeco’s president since 1995 and was its primary shareholder and it was being acquired (in 2004) by the First American Title Insurance Co. It says Safeco Land Title of Fort Worth, Texas was number three in he title insurance market around Dallas.

    BTW, Wendy Davis’ first husband eventually got the trailer and the mortgage on it.

    Sammy Finkelman (4227f2)

  58. Sammy, didn’t she lose or give-up custody of her child to a man that was not the child’s father? That seems pretty extraordinary to me.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  59. Sammy – Although I’m not exactly sure how the title business works in Texas since practices differ state by state, the names being thrown around of the various title entities sound like agencies which issue title insurance policies on behalf of insurance companies owned by SAFECO and First American.

    Lawyers are frequently big players in the real estate and title business.

    No, because that child was over 18 at the time, and there is no custody of an over-18 year old child, although that daugher continued to liove with her step-father and sister in the old family home.

  69. 15. Her story don’t have no legs. Hey, Steve 57… Looks like Boyd Crowder’s an Abarth guy.

    So who’s Boyd Crowder?

    And since when did I imply there’s something wrong with being an Abarth guy?

    Racing improves the breed.

  70. I do admit to being something like a Ford guy. But that’s cuz I like my cars like I like my wimminz. Cheap and available.

    Speaking of which, earlier I was talking about taking a Crown Vic and turning it into a an off-roader. Lift kit, skid plates, locking or limited slip rear diff, whatever. Then I came across this.

    I’m thinking there’s a market if they can charge $99K for that.

  71. I don’t care what they shoe in the adverts, you just wouldn’t treat a $99k car like this.

    Like you could treat a government-auction Crown Vic.

    Break it? What have you broke? Recycle the supercharger and the headers and have another go.

  72. Let’s do the math on the child support:
    Fort Worth Country Day tuition: $20,000 per year
    Dru Davis had three years of high school left when her parents divorced.
    Colorado College tuition, fees, and living expenses for out of state students: $57,000 per year.
    Dru graduated in 2011, so she attended from 2007 to 2011, when it was less money. Would everyone be willing to accept $50,000 as an estimated annual cost?

    Dru’s education, post-divorce, cost a quarter of a million dollars. Wendy’s child support covered less than half of that and does not include other expenses (meals during high school, travel costs, and summer expenses).

    Thoughts? I’m assuming that if Wendy had paid for college or high school, we would be hearing about it.

  73. Gateway has a post up with O’Keefe promising a Davis undercover feature imminently.

    I don’t think ‘undercover’ means a bedroom interview, just surrepticious. Snicker.

  74. Instapundit has it. I didn’t watch it. It’s some “activists” making fun of Abbott’s disability and discussing how to commit voter fraud. Wendy tweeted that she finds it “abhorrent”.

  75. Let there be no doubt, James Carville lost a hundred dollar bill while trolling a Texas trailer park.
