Single Teen Mom? Texas's Wendy Davis Lied About Life Story
Breitbart ^ | 19 Jan 2014, 6:50 PM PDT | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 01/19/2014 8:01:50 PM PST by Hoodat

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 Forth Worth as a Republican.

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

It is not clear whether the article in the Dallas Morning News, by senior political writer Wayne Slater, is meant to be an exposé or a defense, presenting embarrassing details in the best light possible to present an overall picture of competence. One unidentified source, who said that Davis is "going to figure out a way to spin herself in a way that grabs at the heart strings," is also quoted as saying that "she’d be a good governor."

Regardless, the fact that Davis "blurred" her biography raises questions about her integrity. Her ex-husbandsaid she should not have needed to lie--that her real life is "a better narrative than what they’re trying to paint.”

The media tend to protect Democrats--notably, Barack Obama, Davis's contemporary at Harvard Law School--when they present false "composites" of their lives. . .

With Democrats, the ends always justify the means, and 'truth' is always the first casualty.

It sounds like she was needing a “compelling life story” to get her @$$ elected.

A sure sign of a classic Sociopath. No conscience at all. Totally manipulative and narcissistic.

They can't help it. They seem to be born that way. Truth holds no meaning to them. It is not something they value.

Leftists will advance whatever narrative they feel necessary at any particular moment with no regard for accountability.

If Elizabeth Warren’s lying about her ancestral background, in order to take advantage of college and law school affirmative action perks, gets a yawn from the MSM, Abortion Barbie has nothing to fear.

What is it with people that makes them think they won’t get found out?

“her second husband paid her way through law school and she divorced him the day after the last payment was made” - What low character.

The willingness to lie and lie often is a requirement for any Democrat, and this piece of work passes the test with ease. She should go far in the party.

Getting found out is inconsequential to people who have no conscience. She will always say what is necessary at any particular moment without regard to accountability.

She sounds like a pyschopathic bitch on wheels, a potential danger to herself and others, especially small children and the unborn.

Davis needs to be in an insane asylum, not the governors mansion.

And they lie all the time and get away with it. Just look at Hillary Clinton. Here are just a few of those that are trivial compared to her lies about serious issues such as Benghazi.

—Claimed she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary even though he was not famous until she was about 7 years old.

—Claimed she tried to join the military.

—Told a very detailed story about dodging bullets in Bosnia.

Maybe she can “marry” State Senator Kevin DeLeon from California. Can you imagine the collective intellect that union would produce?
