Report: Wendy Davis caught up in FBI investigation
Daily Caller ^ | 4/18/14 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 04/19/2014 4:39:54 AM PDT by Libloather

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.”

The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.”

The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor.

Oops….confiscate those pink sneakers. She might make a break for it…..

It would serve the ungodly who anointed her as their leader if they were to find out she is just another money-grubbing lawyer.

As she is a Demon Rat pol, the above statement is redundantly redundant, speaking redundantly.

Wendy’s gubernatorial chances seem to diminish day by day. Hope the national democrat party sends her some more campaign money to piss away.

If this gets too hot, regardless of the state voting laws, she will be replaced on the ticket by some other commie dem.

The radical that seized the Department of Justice building and defied Congress by changing DoJ to the Department of Just Us and Our People.. is he losing control? How can the FBI get away with investigating one of his people? Will other campus radicals try to take over the FBI building? Developing . . . .

It appears that Windy’s chances of surviving as a viable political candidate have been aborted.

“FBI investigation = (D)Marxist resume enhancer”

There appears to be something afoot at the FBI. They have arrested something on the order of five Democratic politicians in the last two months. I’d think this behavior would be a career killer. Also, it seems unlikely the DOJ will prosecute. Oh, DOJ might pretend to prosecute Yee, but he’d probably get an 11th hour pardon. One wonders why they’re risking their careers. (I’m thrilled to death, but they may have revealed themselves too soon, thus leading to early retirement.)

HOORAY FBI. The agency seems to be stepping up against internal enemies lately.

You would use the law to oppose socialism? But it is upon the law that socialism itself relies. Socialists desire to practice legal plunder, not illegal plunder. Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon. And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism? For when plunder is abetted by the law, it does not fear your courts, your gendarmes, and your prisons. Rather, it may call upon them for help. - Bastiat - "The Law"

HOORAY FBI

The dems know abortion barbie is a lost cause and need to manufacture a reason for her to drop out...

If the external polling is horrible for Davis, I'm sure the internal polling is far, far worse...

For any hope of getting Texas to go blue, the dems need to put in a candidate who has a chance to win...

regardless of the state voting laws,

You must not know of our current secretary of state if you believe Bandits Berry would not follow the law in order to help the Dems and create a fraudulent ballot.

Thanks Libloather.
...related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.
Of course you realize that the involvement of the FBI means that all the Curses, Tinfoiled Again types in our midst will now start campaigning for Wendy Davis.

You got me on that one, I don't know the current one. I never put anything past the RAT party when it comes to elections though so my supposition is correct, they would do whatever it takes to win. The RATS go by the notion "we don't need no stinkin laws", unless they favor them. Then the law is supreme to all things including common sense.

Wait, let me get this straight — are you saying that it’s abundantly redundant?

IMHO, there's no career risk here. They're just getting the democrat investigations out of the way in the springtime of an election year. The GOP investigation details will be leaked or released in September/October...

What’s the difference between Abortion Barbie and a 747?

Not everyone has been on a 747.

She failed far too fast and early.

I’d hoped her campaign would be a sinkhole for national progressive campaign cash that might otherwise go to close races.

Looks like it’s not gonna happen.
