Wendy Davis is a hero because she wore pink sneakers while holding a filibuster in support of murdering children. Then Melissa Harris Perry wore tampon earrings on MSNBC in support of Wendy Davis and also became a hero. It’s easy to be a hero these days.
A single mother working two jobs, she met Jeff Davis, a lawyer 13 years older than her, married him and had a second daughter. He paid for her last two years at Texas Christian University and her time at Harvard Law School, and kept their two daughters while she was in Boston.
In his initial divorce filing, Jeff Davis said the marriage had failed, citing adultery on her part and conflicts that the couple could not overcome. The final court decree makes no mention of infidelity, granting the divorce solely “on the ground of insupportability.”
Wendy Davis’ amazing heroic life story includes heroically using her husband as an ATM to pay for Harvard, heroically cheating on him, heroically divorcing him after using him to get the last loan payment and heroically dumping their kids on him.
