Miss Davis is getting everything she deserves. First, is she that myopic to not know that misstating your past does not fly any longer? Anybody with a computer and some initiative can put your resume under a microscope. It has happened multiple times and cost many people their jobs, but Davis -- who has launched a campaign for the governorship of the second largest state in the union -- must have felt she could get away with her manipulations. In this case, it was not some bozo that did the checking, but a reporter for the Dallas Morning News, Wayne Slater, who is well known for his attacks on George W. Bush.
The numerous discrepancies in her resume make her look like a serial liar, but a couple of things bring her integrity into question. Women have justifiably complained on many occasions that their husbands left them after they (the wife) worked to put them through medical or law school. This is a despicable act by a deplorable person. Then why would it not be so for Ms. Davis? She has not denied she left her second husband after he paid for her college and law degrees.
The second thing that makes someone question her integrity is that not only did the daughter from her second marriage choose the husband in the divorce, but the daughter from her first marriage did also (she actually had reached majority age). We deplore men who don’t take full responsibility for their children so why should Ms. Davis be different? I have not seen anywhere that she fought for joint custody. What she apparently fought for was her political career.
She would not own up to her situation beyond stating she had minor timing discrepancies in her resume. After that she attacked the guy in a wheel chair. Her opponent appears to be Greg Abbott, the Texas Attorney General, who was partially paralyzed when hit by a falling tree. If Abbott is guilty of anything he should have just kept out of it, because the press was having a field day with Davis. But Davis stooped even lower and blamed Abbott for the negative press.
What are we missing here? How can anybody not pile on this lady? How can even the likes of Al Sharpton defend this lady? Has she become such a heroine of the left because she defended late-term abortion that she has become untouchable? Are there no grownups in the Democratic Party of Texas who can call for her to step aside since the die is cast and she is dead meat in this race?
None of these questions will be answered because she is a woman and she still gets protection from being treated equally. It is time for women to reach full equality and for the press to treat them the same. If they want full equality economically -- as they deserve -- then they should be held up to the same scrutiny in the political arena. That means let’s see Davis and Clinton pilloried for their misdeeds and not protected because of their gender.
