True, I just think it had more to do with how she presented that SHE paid for her school and how she was a self-made woman. I'd be really proud of a woman like that, conservative, liberal whatever...but then to find out that it wasn't necessarily the truth...ya know, I'd have been okay with her saying "I didn't do this on my own, my exhusband helped and even though our relationship didn't work out, I still value greatly the contributions he made in helping me".
Well, I'm sure deep down inside she feels that way. It's difficult for some people to openly speak in public about their true feelings, and recalling that part of her life publically could be something she honestly feels is no others' business other than her own, finding it much easier just to say "I put myself through college", when in reality, I can see how she did. And I wouldn't fault her for saying that, or even imbelishing the truth. For the truth probably isn't my business anyway. As long as she does her job well.

Racism isn't lovable. It is actually really deplorable.

I forgive them as they are cowards hiding behind fake screen names, but they know what they are doing. That they are allowed to parade evil wantonly and if they get anyone who points out their evil banned only means this site is evil right along with them.

Because Wendy Davis misrepresented her life story, because the deception was exposed publicly, because a few on this forum tried to gloss it over but were unable to ... for those reasons this site is evil?

Just, no ...

No this thread is a lie. She was off a year. That isn't a scandal. She was a teen mom who did live in a trailer, and she did put herself through law school. To miss characterize her is a lie.

That such lies are permitted is a sure sign of evil.

Had the story only come from the Dallas Morning News, you might have a point. That's why the first link I provided was to the Washington Post, a paper which would ordinarily have defended her to the hilt, if that were at all possible. Instead, the Washington Post printed this ... in the Post's own narrative: Wendy Davis admits to fuzzy facts in bio
Davis, a rising Democratic star, has touted herself as a Texas success story. She has said she was a divorced teenage mother who went from living in a mobile home, juggling low-wage jobs and going to community college to graduating from Harvard Law School.

The up-from-nowhere narrative, which emerged during an 11-hour filibuster she staged in June to oppose abortion restrictions, has been a central part of her candidacy and appeal, helping to boost her national profile and fundraising efforts.
It was her "rags to riches" narrative of lifting herself up by her own bootstraps which is being attacked. By all accounts it's patently untrue. Believe it or not, this story from the Washington Post is actually a "damage control" article. This is not a "hit piece".

It seems to me that the good people of Texas have a right to know just who this woman is. The people of Texas now have more information with which to make a decision. Rather than being evil, that's all to the good.

We do know her here in TX. I know her like I know Steve Radack or Adrian Garcia. She had her daughter at 18. She did go to community college. She did get into Harvard. That is all true.

What's the problem then. I don't know that any of those matters have been called into question.
