“How do you plan on investing on the aborted children?”
December 4, 2013
Wendy Davis, the Texas democrat who launched a filibuster on the Texas Senate floor last June opposing abortion restrictions, is weathering flak due to a recent ill-conceived tweet.
As governor, I’ll always make investing in our Texas children my first priority. #TeamWendy

One person even went as far as drawing a comparison between Davis’ filibuster and the historic filibuster Sen. Rand Paul conducted in opposition of chief counterterrorism advisor John Brennan’s nomination to head up the CIA.

After the abortion filibuster vaulted her into national prominence, Davis in October formally announced she would seek the governorship in Texas’ November 2014 elections, hoping to replace exiting Gov. Rick Perry.
Davis proved to be an opponent of the Constitution when, in 1996 after she lost a race for Fort Worth city council, she sued the Fort Worth Star-Telegram alleging “that biased coverage led to her defeat and caused injury to her physical and mental health.” “[T]he suit was later dismissed on free speech grounds, according to news accounts in the hometown paper,” reported the Texas Tribune.
