Dallas Morning News Editorial Board Eviscerates Wendy Davis

While a Texas State Senator, Wendy Davis was voting for bills that favored her clients in her law practice. The Dallas Morning News’ Wayne Slater is hot on the trail of the facts.

 

Over the weekend, the Dallas Morning News published a damning report on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ tenure in the Texas state senate. Senior political writer Wayne Slater documented how Davis, who worked at a law firm while also serving in the part-time legislature, voted on legislation that directly benefited her firm’s clients:

Records show Davis supported legislation governing a toll-road project for which the North Texas Tollway Authority hired her firm. She backed changes governing the collection of unpaid tolls that preceded an NTTA program in which law firms — including Davis’ — were chosen to carry out the collections. And as a state senator, she sought federal money for a transportation project being handled by her law firm.

During the 2011 legislative session, Davis was billing the tollway authority for condemnation work on one project the same day she was voting for toll-collection legislation backed by the NTTA.
