HOUSTON, Texas -- State Senator and gubernatorial candidate, Wendy Davis, recently released a new ad attacking her opponent, Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott. The ad suggested that Abbott was is more interested in giving kickback payments to his supporters than finding a cure for cancer. Davis' charges relate to $11 million in taxpayer funds that were awarded as a grant by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), apparently without proper review. While Abbott sits on CPRIT's governing board, the Attorney General has effectively blunted himself from Davis' assertions and cleared himself from any conflicts of interest.
