Texas Governor candidate Wendy Davis has been accused of fudging her biography facts.
A newspaper article that went up over the weekend pointed out that Wendy Davis was 21 when she got a divorce, not 19. Davis argued back against the article and claimed that it was a part of opponent Greg Abbott’s campaign against her. However, the writer of the article claims that he didn’t talk to a single person from Abbot’s campaign to get information for the piece, reports Politico.
Wendy Davis’ bio paints a picture of her as a single-teenage mother that lived in a trailer and had multiple minimum wage jobs to pay for her tuition at Harvard Law School. The article examining Davis’ bio states that she only lived in a trailer for a short time and that she married a lawyer when she was 24. This lawyer, Jeff Davis, helped pay for Davis’ tuition with loans and his 401K, The Washington Post notes.
