Most of the attacks against Davis are sexist. As a columnist for Breibart.com tweeted: "Wendy Davis: My story of attending Harvard Law on my husband's dime while he took care of the kids is a story every woman can relate to." Talking Points Memo has a plethora of examples of the full-force sexist attacks. And Twitter exploded earlier this week with the #MoreFakeThanWendyDavis hashtag, making fun of Davis for being a liar.
The problem is that the Dallas Morning News article that caused this backlash is questionable at best, and is undeniably sexist in its telling of Davis' story. Slater implies that Davis was a negligent mother in order to pursue her education and political career, and that she used her husband for his money. He quotes an "anonymous source" that claims that "Wendy [Davis] is tremendously ambitious. She's not going to let family or raising children or anything else to get in her way."
The "blurred facts", according to Slater, were that Davis says she divorced at 19, when in fact she had only separated from his first husband at 19, with the divorce being finalized when she was 21. Slater says that Davis overstates her time living as a single mother in a trailer, explaining that "she lived only a few months in a family mobile home while separated from her husband before moving into an apartment".

But what if its true? Will the liar tell us?
Exposing RATS is a dirty business.
“Painting Wendy Davis as a bad mother is political sexism at its worst”
Actually, it seems to be an undeniable FACT.
Guess I missed the Guardian editorial where they complained of the “unfair” and “sexist” media criticism of Sarah Palin.
The woman is a grifter bimbo.
Sorry, Guardian, but that’s the way it usually is with folks you defend.
And they railroaded Cain for commenting to a women that she was as tall as his wife........
Pointing out that she’s a liar isn’t painting her as a bad mother. The truth is what paints her as a bad mother.
I was just about to say, no, Sandra Bernhard (whatever her name is, you know, the fugly lesbian so-called comedian) calling for Sarah Palin to be raped in a NYC alley by the fugly lesbo’s “black brothers” was sexism at its worst-amongst all the other ugly, ugly things which have been said about Palin (including what got that fruitcKe Bashit fired).
Calling Wendy Davis out on her lies isn’t sexist, unless “strong women” get a pass for lying to look like victims. “I am woman, hear me mewl”.
Jessica Luther doesn’t have to worry as the voters in Texas
will sort it all out by Nov. 2014.
Painting her as anything other than a mole-faced, bottle blonde, gold digging road whore is journalistic malpractice.
but it was a-okay when they did it to Sarah Palin...
Blah, blah, blah. And if you are against Obama it’s because you are a racist...
Exposing her lies is not painting her as anything but a liar.
Painting her in the worst possible light is part of the lefts game plan for 2016.
They will have to compare and contrast her with another women. To show how the other woman was a victim, has a family and stuck by her man when he had his transgressions.
Hmmmm.. Who would that be?
This is page 5 in the Democrat playbook. Question is how much is Wendy Davis getting from the Clinton’s PAC?
Wenchy Davis abandoned her two daughters.
Exactly. Sarah Palin was painted as a bad mother because she chose to give birth and love her baby.
Telling the truth about Democrats is EVIL.
She may be a good mother...but she certainly is a BAD liar!
She should not have lied and she wouldn’t have this problem.
If “painting” Wendy is sexism then throwing the whole bucket of paint on Sarah Palin by the Democrats is sexism at its worst.
“Painting her as anything other than a mole-faced, bottle blonde, gold digging road whore is journalistic malpractice.”
No need to insult fine horizontally afflicted Road Whores now!
Check out Luther’s ridiculous web site. ‘Reproductive Justice’. She’s a Fluke clone. Poor girl probably can’t afford enough condoms with all the sex she’s having .
Anytime one catches a democrat lying it is either sexist or racist. Liars is what they are, if they reveal what they think they can’t get elected.
It’s not so much “painting” as it’s pouring turpentine to remove the false facade and exposing the true nature beneath the desperate illusion.
I don’t know any good mothers that have had their children taken from them after they have effectively abandoned their children.
I can also say that I don’t know any good mothers who have been ordered to be sober (No Drugs or Alcohol 24 hours prior) while exercising their visitation privileges.
When it comes to tolerance of bad behavior, that has to be cut off when it involves children. No excuses and No exceptions.
Well said, brother!
That makes him look pretty good but her not so much...
Telling the truth about Marxists is racist.
Pray America is Waking
Wendy “Anna Nicole” Davis is everyone’s dream Mom then, is that better?
She’s trash as most liberals are, the rules and morals don’t apply to them!
What ruined Cain was that Mrs. Cain did not know that Cain was giving family money to another woman.
And then what was her campaign doing when they portrayed her (falsely, as it turned out) as a good mother?
Don’t put too much confidence on the voters of TX. The Republicans haven’t delivered much, and many will grow disillusioned with the GOP, even as they vote to re-nominate Cornball and nominate George P.!
No more calls, please. We have a winner!
Publishing quotes from Wendy Davis where she said that it was just not a good time for her to continue in her responsibilities as a mother, is just political sexism. So, I guess we must judge a candidate’s historical record in light of modern feminist theory and anyone who violates this subjective standard is “sexist”. Who wouldda known except we were soundly scolded by Those Who Keep Score.
“Painting Wendy Davis as a bad mother is political sexism at its worst”
It is not a painting; it is a snapshot.
The reality is she did a lot of stupid things. But most of us have. The bigger issue is that she has apparently not learned from them and continues to celebrate these foolish choices along with the “hail Satan” radical left.
If you want to piss off a conservative, lie.
If you want to piss off a liberal, tell the truth.

‘Mother’ implies the child, or children, actually lived with the person. Biological parent is more appropriate
To the court she is not a bad mother, she isn’t one at all - she lost her parental rights.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 27% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
No, she lost custody. No need to paint it to be worse than it is.
Abortion Barbie is a liar just like Soetoro..
It was fair game with Sarah Palin. Why the double standard?
.....Jessica Luther the issue in this instance is the credibility of leftists like yourself. Whenever ANYTHING happens that “the left” takes issue with, the SCREAM is always and predictably either Racism or Sexism!
By now (after about 50 years of this), somewhere around 100,000,000 of us have tuned this bs out. We don’t hear you ANYMORE!
So, if you want to “be heard” again, try a new tactic.
