Skip to comments.Wendy Davis Backers Caught on Tape Making Fun of Greg Abbott for Being Paralyzed

A new undercover videotape may spell further doom for the campaign of Wendy Davis, the pro-abortion candidate for governor in Texas whose sole claim to fame is having filibustered against a bill to ban late-term abortions.
The tape has the Davis campaign mocking her pro-life opponent, Greg Abbott, for being paralyzed. This is the second time the Davis campaign has come under criticism for mocking Abbotts disability.
Conservative activist James OKeefe released the video today:
wendydavis12While investigating Obamacare Navigators, Battleground Texas, and their connection to Obamas Organizing for America, we caught some deeply offensive comments on tape.
It seems Battleground Texas and Wendy Davis strategy to win the Governors seat is to mock Attorney General Abbotts disability. We caught Davis supporters and Battleground Texas staff on tape making crude statement such as isnt that amazing to think of? Hes in a wheelchair and we want to stand with Wendy?
Even more disturbing was an election official who when asked about forging signatures covered her ears and then went on to admit, People do that all the time. A Battleground Texas volunteer then added, I dont think its legal but I didnt hear you say that.
UPDATE: Davis has responded to the video, calling it abhorrent:
Greg Abbott has persevered through great personal challenge to raise a family, have a productive career, and for that he deserves our respect, she said.
At age 26, Abbott was struck by a falling oak tree that injured his back as he jogged by. He has used a wheelchair ever since and has become an eloquent pro-life advocate speaking up for both the disabled and the unborn.
The accident serves as a reminder that regardless of someones circumstances, he or she deserves a chance at life, Abbott has said.
As I laid there motionless on the ground, gripped with pain, as helpless as a child in the womb, I knew my life had changed forever, he said at the National Right to Life convention in June. Some people think its easy to write off the lives of the disabled or the different. But every day, God reminds us that all life has value, no matter the form.
Doom? They’ll probably use it as a fundraiser, such is the modern Democratic Party.
Did Biden fly in to say “Stand up Chuck” and laugh along with the other evil dems?
When you don’t respect life at the beginning, you don’t ever tend to respect it.
oh that those geniuses in the MSM had the courage and more importantly the decency...to air this
That is not the case here. This is what my mom always said “it will someday come home to you” sort of thing.
They could one day be easily paralyzed.
but democrats tell us there is NO voter fraud and it is racist to even suggest it...
Exactly! These people support the murder of babies, of course they don’t care about someone in a wheelchair..if they had it their way they would abort him now..a disabled person doesn’t serve the progressive “purpose”
Unlike unborn babies, Wendy, or did you just forget to "tighten up your language" again?
That joke was abhorrent, but abortions until the last breath are sacred to Marxists.
Pray America is Waking
These people are so deceived and pathetic. I pray that something breaks through the walls around their hearts to let the pus drain out.
These Davis people are very trashy.
the Upside of Global Cooling....No Global Warming....and ESKIMO PIES!
I dont handle sugar very well these days so Eskimo Pies will have to remain a fond memory!
I got a Tin Of Cookies for Christmas..and made the mistake of figuring I could cheat..by eating just a few....dozen. It did not turn out well...
I cant wait until the 27th......Its National THOMAS CRAPPER DAY....among other things
Yeah, she’s over.
One of the more epic flameouts on the liberal side in recent memory. I hope we never hear from this baby-killing liar ever again.
You can get sugar free Klondike bars.
Even in middle tn leave a 12er of diet Dr pepper cans in the back of my pick up and its busted everywhere
Its 1 right now....in rural Williamson
Coldest southern winter I’ve seen I think in 56 solar orbits
I go out and break horse water tank 5-6 times a day and they are super thick coated and eating 2-3 times normal volume
It is cold
We’ve been seasonal cold only maybe 7-10 days since mid November.....mostly below freezing
I watched kids sliding about on fishing ponds with ice 8-14 inches thick
Only water not frozen is that moving....even some ice on bank of Cumberland....very rare
Trying to keep our car washes open is....challenging
Good point. They might as well have added, "we are legion."
Sure is good to hear from home. It was 4 in Bama this morning.
Folks getting in a twist about it here.
Having lived in Alaska - this doesn’t bother me too much.
Stay warm my FRiend - hope Annette and the children are doing well!!
It was colder in the winter of 89-90. Barely got above 0 degrees fro about 6 days in a row.
Hey, I was told that when the day women would be in charge of things, government would become warmer and more understanding and less callous and ruthless.
Ah, well, this is marketing.
All I know is that Bill and Ruth went for a drive. Bill hit a tree and Ruth flew ruthlessly.
At least it warmed up to 29 degrees today. And it’s sunny. Should get some car wash customers.
Definetly the coldest in middle TN I’ve been in these last 24 years.
It was 4 degrees when I went to bed last nigh.
Between Christmas and New Years Day IIRC.
You never know, the Democratic convetion is in 2016.
I once had a craving for a certain large bakerys 59 percent sugar donuts...the ones that SHINE in the light....
