Remember that fake Wendy Davis “scandal”? In which Texas right wingers tried to smear Wendy for pieces of her life story in classically sexist ways? One of the accusations against her was that she had manipulated her ex-husband into helping her out with her kids while she went through school. (Imagine that! A man caring for kids!) Well, it doesn’t seem to be going great for the smear campaign. Her supposedly manipulated ex-husband isn’t quite buying the scandal either:
Wendy Davis’ second ex-husband, Jeff Davis, says he doesn’t want to talk any more about his ex-wife, adding he wasn’t pleased with the explosive debate that originated from his recent comments about the Texas gubernatorial candidate.
“Despite our differences, Wendy would make a very capable governor,” he said Tuesday in an email response, in which he declined a request for an on-camera interview with CNN.
“Certain comments seem to always be taken out of context and the firestorm of Facebook/hashtag stuff is not useful for forming opinions,” he added.
Pro tip, Texas Republicans: when you want to manufacture a scandal, get information that is, you know, scandalous.
