Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for governor of Texas, has admitted that a number of key details in her public personal narrative do not match up with the reality of the facts.
The Texas state senator who rose to national fame for her successful 13-hour filibuster against new abortion restrictions, acknowledged to The Dallas Morning News that there are some chronological errors and incomplete details in what she and her advisers have said about her life.
"My language should be tighter," she told the paper. "I'm learning about using broader, looser language. I need to be more focused on the detail."
Davis, who is running against Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott for the governorship, has repeatedly touted a personal story of having been a divorced teenage mother who lived in a trailer but ultimately fought her way to Harvard Law School.
She has pointed to her narrative as a testament to hard work and the American Dream, and her campaign has heavily relied on it to build support and boost fundraising.
It has now emerged that she was divorced at the age of 21, despite her claims during a recent hearing under oath that she was 19. Also, she lived only briefly in the family mobile home after she separated from her first husband before moving into an apartment with her daughter.
Meanwhile, her website says, "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."
The paper points out that she has neglected to disclose that her second husband paid for the second two years of her undergraduate degree from Texas Christian University,

Was Thomas Edison defined by his many dead-ends in his lab rather than his successful creation of the light bulb?
He babbling is stupid.
Just another lib liar. Caught like a Rat in a trap. Not dead yet, but with time it will happen.
Stick a fork in abortion barbie. She’s done.
“My language should be tighter,” she told the paper. “I’m learning about using broader, looser language. I need to be more focused on the detail.”
A spoiled rich white girl who lies - that’s the modern Democrat party. :)
Are you kidding? The lamestream media will cover for her all day.
Look at the lies bammy has told and not one bit of accountability has been hung around his neck.
If commie ‘RAT libs didn’t lie, they’d never get elected. Lies are all they have.
I suspect she took some additional courses at the Clinton Crime Family school of language parsing....
My language should be tighter? Perhaps she confuses syntax with anatomy?
I have absolutely zero doubt in my mind she is going down in flames against Abbott. She won’t be heard from again after that, and maybe we can deport those Castro twins back to whatever hellhole they came from.
Still, good to divert some leftist money away from senate candidates and such.
But to the low info voter she appeals to they won’t give a rat’s hair. Lying has become a virtue.
The kind of person who would vote for her in the first place won’t care that she is a liar and perjuror. She was a long shot to win regardless but lets not kid ourselves about what we are up against. We face a democrat electorate that doesn’t care about honesty, or honor, or even criminality as long their guy a)furthers the leftist cause and b)keeps giving free stuff to people who won’t work.
‘looser language’ — isn’t that so those nasty FACTS don’t get in the way? She’s a perfect lib.
When Obama lies it is said he misspoke. This liberal liar needs to “tighten her language”? Orwell’s Newspeak need updating.
No, your language should be truthful.
Just getting that whole word composition abed meaning thing down. What is she, in the 6th grade?
6th graders are smarter.
She figures that if a false narrative helped get the usurper-in-chief elected president, twice, then it should help propel her into the governorship of Texas. Lying liberal logic. Might just work if she could bus in some liberal voters from the left coast, northeast coast and a few other hotbeds of liberalism spread across this country. Better still, she should just go to one of the liberal hotbeds.
All crap like this (and much worse) merely enhances the resume and reputation of a lib.
Said the Harvard Law School grad. Humph....
Abortion Barbie sez: “Telling the whole truth is HARD.”
