Wendy Davis is a hero because she wore pink sneakers while holding a filibuster in support of murdering children. Then Melissa Harris Perry wore tampon earrings on MSNBC in support of Wendy Davis and also became a hero. It’s easy to be a hero these days.
Now Wendy Davis is heroically running for governor in Texas and the media keeps calling her heroic because of her amazingly heroic life story.
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.
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.”
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.
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.”
Wendy Davis’ amazing heroic life story includes heroically using her husband as an ATM to pay for Harvard, heroically cheating on him, heroically divorcing him after using him to get the last loan payment and heroically dumping their kids on him.
A former colleague and political supporter who worked closely with Davis when she was on the council said the body’s work was very time-consuming.
“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.”
Wendy Davis really is the perfect poster child to campaign for abortion. I wonder which of her daughters she wishes she would have killed.
