Wendy Davis, the one with the fake life story, said one of the most asinine comments by a candidate in recent memory today in response to the article from this weekend’s Dallas Morning News by Wayne Slater.
Of course she says it was an attack by her opponent for governor Greg Abbott or conservatives. Never mind the fact that the Dallas Morning News and Wayne Slater are anything but conservative in nature. Abbott’s campaign said they never spoke with Slater or any other writers about Davis’ bio.
Her campaign released this statement earlier today:
We’re not surprised by Greg Abbott’s campaign attacks on the personal story of my life as a single mother who worked hard to get ahead. But they won’t work, because my story is the story of millions of Texas women who know the strength it takes when you’re young, alone and a mother.
I’ve always been open about my life not because my story is unique, but because it isn’t.
The truth is that at age 19, I was a teenage mother living alone with my daughter in a trailer and struggling to keep us afloat on my way to a divorce. And I knew then that I was going to have to work my way up and out of that life if I was going to give my daughter a better life and a better future and that’s what I’ve done. I am proud of where I came from and I am proud of what I’ve been able to achieve through hard work and perseverance. And I guarantee you that anyone who tries to say otherwise hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.
Well first of all Wendy, Greg Abbott can’t walk, he paralyzed. That struggle I am sure is bigger than any education you struggled to attain while your husband kept your kids safe and fed. It really says a lot about you that you sink that low, however, I am not surprised by it. I expect a lawsuit to be filed any day now against the Dallas Morning News and Wayne Slater.
Until then just sit back and enjoy her campaign meltdown like no other in recent memory. I got my popcorn ready.
