Big shock – Wendy Davis dramatically misrepresents her life story January 20, 2014

Pro-baby-killing Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has created a mythology about herself, claiming she left an abusive marriage at age 19 and worked her way through college as a single mom before beginning her political career.  That mythos was established to try to give her special credibility in standing in opposition to the major pro-life measures (although still highly deficient) passed by the Texas legislature in special session last summer.  See, she was a woman who knew what it was like for young women to struggle, and didn’t want them to be burdened with a baby to make their climb up the materialist ladder that much more difficult.  Or something.

As it turns out, her life story is quite a bit different.  One might say she misrepresented herself, or, one might say she’s a near pathological liar, totally re-creating her past at variance with facts in order to improve her electoral prospects.  For one thing, the current demonrat darling originally ran as a Republican in Tarrant County:

Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator whose filibuster for abortion rights made her a Democratic superstar and launched her campaign for governor, has admitted to the Dallas Morning News that she lied about key events in her life, including her first divorce. Davis may even have lied under oath, testifying in a federal lawsuit over redistricting that “I got divorced by the time I was 19 years old,” when in fact she was divorced at age 21.

Other missing details have included: her second husband paid her way through law school and she divorced him the day after the last payment was made; her ex-husband accused her in initial court filings of adultery, and was awarded custody of their two daughters; and she first ran for city council in Fort Worth as a Republican.

“My language should be tighter,” she said, admitting her campaign biography has been less than truthful.

“Tighter,” meaning, “I made it up out of whole cloth, but now that I’ve been caught out, I need to remove the egregious lies. They served their purpose, though, they made me a left wing media darling for a few weeks.”

It remains to be seen whether voters will be concerned about this lack of memory.

So, let’s see, she was not a single mom, save for a few months, some are saying she’s essentially a gold-digger or grifter, divorcing her second husband the day after he finished paying for her Harvard Law education, and she was originally not a democrat, but a Republican.  Even more oddly, her own biological daughter stayed with her second husband, even though he was not her father, and the father was granted child support, meaning the fault in the divorce must have been overwhelmingly on Davis’ side.

A few more telling quotes from the original Dallas Morning News article, which bent over backwards trying to downplay Davis’ past and re-construe it in a positive light (in fact, that is almost certainly the reason this story came out, to allow Davis to message it and control how it is received, rather than having her Republican opponent reveal it for the first time):

“Wendy is tremendously ambitious,” he said, speaking only on condition of anonymity in order to give what he called an honest assessment. “She’s not going to let family or raising children or anything else get in her way.” [Well, at least we know her priorities…..]

He said: “She’s going to find a way, and she’s going to figure out a way to spin herself in a way that grabs at the heart strings. A lot of it isn’t true about her, but that’s just us who knew her. But she’d be a good governor.”

I have also seen some rumors there is much more to come, regarding that divorce, and just how much her second ex drained himself to pay off those Harvard loans, in spite of Davis rhetoric to the contrary.  But I will admit, he seems very supportive now.

There was a time in this country when being a divorcee would have meant being automatically excluded from high public office.  Adlai Stevenson was the first major party candidate to be a divorce back in 1952, and it was a pretty big scandal.  So much has changed since then.  Marriage has been totally trashed, and by men and women, not men and men.

Davis never had a prayer, but she’s likely to lose by double digits if her fabricated past is deconstructed.

It is amazing how inseparable the pro-aborts are from lies.
