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:
