Left-wing heroine Wendy Davis — whom the left adores because she filibustered on behalf of infanticide and unsanitary abortion mills — turns out to have made up a lot of the details in her official biography.
“With the help of academic scholarships and student loans, Wendy not only became the first person in her family to earn a bachelor’s degree but graduated first in her class and was accepted to Harvard Law School,” her website says.
A single mother working two jobs, she met Jeff Davis, a lawyer 13 years older than her, married him and had a second daughter. He paid for her last two years at Texas Christian University and her time at Harvard Law School, and kept their two daughters while she was in Boston. When they divorced in 2005, he was granted parental custody, and the girls stayed with him. Wendy Davis was directed to pay child support.
When she was accepted to Harvard Law School, Jeff Davis cashed in his 401(k) account and eventually took out a loan to pay for her final year there. Over time, the Davises’ marriage was strained. In November 2003, Wendy Davis moved out.
In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part and conflicts that the couple could not overcome. The final court decree makes no mention of infidelity, granting the divorce solely “on the ground of insupportability.”
Jeff Davis said that was right around the time the final payment on their Harvard Law School loan was due. “It was ironic,” he said. “I made the last payment, and it was the next day she left.”
So, basically, she married a sugar daddy, cheated on him, dumped him when he had paid her way through law school, and left him with the kids; a real feminist heroine.
Obviously, northeastern Democrats don’t care about politicians who lie. Liz “Fauxcahontas” Warren lied about having Native American heritage in order to become an Affirmative Action hire at Harvard and was elected handily in Massachusetts over electable moderate Republic Scott Brown. Abe “Sue ‘Em All” Blumenthal lied about serving in Vietnam, and Connecticut Democrats couldn’t have cared less. But Texas, at least for now, holds its politicians to a higher standard.
