Wendy Davis’ ex-husband: “They’ve asked me not to talk to reporters”

Wendy Davis’ ex-husband: “They’ve asked me not to talk to reporters”

But he didn’t listen to the campaign, and the result is the implosion of Wendy Davis’ personal and political narratives

Wendy Davis, the progressive movement’s Texas darling because of her pro-late term abortion filibuster, is withering under revelations that much of her narrative of struggle and financial hardship is misleading at best, fabricated at worst.

The wagons are being circled around her with claims of a War on Women and sexism … all because the truth has come out via an interview with her husband by the Dallas Morning News, and other investigation.

There even are accusations by Texas Democratic political operatives that the campaign of her opponent, Gregg Abbott, has been peddling the story. So far, however, the facts revealed by the Dallas Morning News have not been contested.

In fact, bits of the story were revealed in a Houston Chronicle article on September 2, 2013, but no one paid attention because the Chronicle story was not as detailed and Davis would not announce her run for the Governorship for another month. There was no campaign narrative yet developed, as there is now and as to which the Dallas Morning News article is devastating.

Among other things, the Chronicle story revealed that Davis’ ex-husband cashed in his 401k to pay for her law school, and also that a loan was taken out and that she left just after the final payment:

Their daughter, Dru, was born while Wendy was at TCU. After graduation, Wendy was accepted to Harvard Law School, and Jeff said he cashed in a 401(k) to help pay the cost…..

In November 2003 – the same month a Harvard loan was paid off – she left, Jeff said. “I made the last payment and laughed,” he said.

Wendy stressed that they used their family resources to make her education possible because they thought it was “beneficial for our family.”

“We took out a loan in that third year, and we paid it off as a family,” she said, adding that she made “a nice income” as a lawyer and helped build their title company. Jeff describes it as his company but said she got half when it was sold during the divorce.

Here’s the key thing.

The Wendy Davis campaign has been trying to keep Jeff Davis from speaking to the press for months.  According to the Houston Chronicle article (emphasis added):

“They’ve asked me not to talk to reporters,” Jeff said. He is anyway, because: “If she runs, the scrutiny on her will be extraordinary. She needs to deal with it in a constructive way. She needs to take control of the message. … My goal in all this, I think, is just try and protect the kids as much as I can.”

Now we know why.  Wendy Davis’ personal and campaign narratives don’t hold up to scrutiny.

Davis’ ex-husband saw it coming.  And so did the Davis campaign, which tried to keep him quiet.

Only the progressive movement and the big money donors didn’t have a clue as to what they were buying into.

“They’ve asked me not to talk to reporters”


The truth/facts is like kyptonite to Democrats.

If Democrats were truthful in their campaigns to voters, they would not be elected. Explaining why they lie, lie, lie.

Democrats: No ethics, no morality, no problem.

    Unfortunately, we have seen that Republicans can lie just as well as Democrats. I counted 7-8 lies by Romney during the Jacksonville GOP Primary Debates alone.

    Look at McCain, Boehner and the rest of the socialist big government faux conservative Republicans… the lies they tell about Tea Party/Conservatives. Truth does not seem to grace their hearts and lips either.

    OH! oH! oh!

    You said it PFG!

Telling the truth about Wendy Davis is SEXIST!

(SEXIST! is the new RACIST!)

Demon ugly Skankles she has. When all is said and done in this farce of hers, Wendy should seriously consider a move to Nevada.

I understand they are hiring.

    Paul in reply to JP. | January 20, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    They are rather leathery looking, aren’t they? Must be all the time on the tennis courts and in the tanning beds… you know how hard it is when you’re pulling yourself up by your bootstraps from the trailer park, right?

    But on the skankle-scale, they’re nowhere near as nasty as those calf-like stubs that Shrillary waddles around on. I heard they have to custom make her pantsuits just so she can wedge those knobs through the cankle-holes.

      Now THAT is Hillaryious.

      Wendy, as it seems with more to come is, a first rate scam artist. No doubt she thinks, that Ted Cruz is a large ship wending its way through the Bermuda Triangle..

Wendy Davis cares sooo much about your kids that she abandoned her own

Good ol’ Abortion Barbie is done… stick a fork in her. Texans don’t like baby killers, they don’t like proggies, and they sure as heck don’t like baby murdering progressives that lie, whore around on their husbands and abandon their kids.

But wow, the Republican Party will never learn how to play the dirty game, will it? Why on earth is this coming out now, instead of say…. six months from now when the Dims wouldn’t have time to switch to another horse?

    “Why on earth is this coming out now, instead of say…. six months from now when the Dims wouldn’t have time to switch to another horse?”

    There is no time for the Dims to switch to another horse. The filing deadline is long over, and primaries are in March. The Dims are stuck with Abortion Barbie, and a lot of egg on their faces.

So at age 20-21, she was so “poor” that she owned not one, but three vehicles (received in her divorce) as well as child support, moved back in with her mother (a “single mother of four with only a sixth grade education” — who provided free child care?), conveniently got a job working for her father, and started attending college. This story amounts to nothing more than an irresponsible teen pregnancy. By age 24, she was in nice digs married to a lawyer. Your average college student doesn’t have it this easy. The hardship is… underwhelming.

    Bruce Hayden in reply to janitor. | January 20, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    And, remember, she apparently asked her father to introduce her to her second husband (the older lawyer), and he apparently did so, pimping her out.

      janitor in reply to Bruce Hayden. | January 21, 2014 at 1:01 pm

      Right. And the Pell grants that paid her tuition while she lived with mommy, got free child care, attended community college, worked part time in daddy’s business, and dated a lawyer.

Well, Wendy screwed over Jeff Davis big time, and he sure as heck didn’t enjoy it. The enjoyment is now all on his side. Thank you, Jeff, you’re not just saving TX, you’re also saving the USA. For, sure as shooting this manipulative liar and user would’ve run for POTUS.

legacyrepublican | January 20, 2014 at 10:05 pm

Don’t want to lose focus here. The DNC has used Wendy Davis to fund changing TX from red to blue.

The cool thing for me is that Greg Abbott is a good candidate with a strong conservative message. He strikes me as the genuine article.

And, I like him more than Rick Perry. He has been a shoe in from the start.

The reality is that all this junk about Wendy Davis and her one note campaign has been really used to bring in millions funding the Democratic party in Texas rather than funding just her campaign.

If you really want to keep Texas deep red, support the other guy with your donations and the other Tea Party conservatives in this state ( think Ted Cruz for example or Jeb’s son whom it seems is a conservative ).

Just don’t read this blog article and think it is all over and there is nothing left to do.

Wendy as a lighting rod has brought millions into the state and has already done more damage than her campaign would have ever done against Abbott when it is clear to most here in TX that he will win anyway.

    stevewhitemd in reply to legacyrepublican. | January 20, 2014 at 11:21 pm

    Interesting thought. I would have thought that the Pomos would be crying into their lattes and chardonnays right now bemoaning the lost money, spent on Wendy, that could have gone to another campaign.

    What you’re saying is that it already did.

    But I wonder: except for the Peoples Republic of Austin and the inner city neighborhoods of Dallas and Houston, where can the progressives run in Texas and hope to win?

      Those commie Castro boys in San Antonio are sure popular with the proggie Dims. They make noise about them being future stars of the Dim party on a national scale. How they reconcile all their Race Card crying with the fact that Momma Castro was a militant, card carrying member of “The Race” (La Raza) is beyond me.

    Davis may have raised a cache of D.C./New York money, but not all that much of it has gone to Battleground Texas. Actually, BTs numbers fall way short of their goal.

    The D.C. Democrat elite bet on what they thought was Secretariat and wound up with Francis, the talking mule. They should have vetted her a little better before they started throwing the greenbacks at her.

      The happy pink trim on the Wendy Davis fundraising misadventure is that Dems literate enough to write checks will hesitate before writing the next one to a Dem campaign.

    Don’t forget the $700 million in “ObamaCare education” money that is being spent in states that the Dems hope to win difficult elections. They may not be able to give it directly to their candidates, but they can fund democratic front groups who will spend it to elect progressive fascist candidates like Wendy.

    Lady Penguin in reply to legacyrepublican. | January 21, 2014 at 7:07 am

    Excellent point, she was effective with rolling in dollars to Dem Party in Texas. “Abortion Barbie” has her uses.

“Only the progressive movement and the big money donors didn’t have a clue as to what they were buying into.”

They never do, and they don’t care. It’s not the individual who matters or has merit, but the narrative. Wendy gave them the all-you-can-kill-babies narrative and then the single-mama-don’t-need-no-man narrative. It’s a twofer! She could be a serial killer who sympathizes with terrorists and smokes cigarettes, to the Left she is solid gold.

One forgets her filibuster failed.

DINORightMarie | January 20, 2014 at 11:28 pm

I wonder……

Even though everything that was found out about Lizzie Warren was TRUE (a 1000 thanks, Professor!), it didn’t stop her being elected as a US Senator. (Yes, in blue, blue MA, but elected to the US Senate nonetheless.)

Will this hurt Wendy? Is Wendy the one who leaked this, to get it out of the way early? Will Texans vote for her anyway?

With the Dem’s apparent success with the “war on women” meme, and the Republicans supposed HATE HATE HATE women (a lie, of course!)……..I wonder. It is the goal of the Democrats to turn Texas BLUE, just as they are doing with Virginia (as we speak).

I wonder…….

Poor guy. He has been neutered, and hasn’t yet realized it…

BannedbytheGuardian | January 21, 2014 at 12:15 am

Now the divorce records show a request that she not use drugs for 24 hours before visitation. And he got the daughter to take his side .

I think the most damaging info is that she is from Rhode Island.

    stevewhitemd in reply to BannedbytheGuardian. | January 21, 2014 at 8:54 am

    Divorce records? Public? I thought only Democrats could pry open divorce records, and that only against a Pub office-seeker (e.g. Jack Ryan, Illinois, 2004).

The joint kid is going to need serious therapy.

Mom is a pile of crap.
Dad is a pile of crap who just trashed the mother of his kid to the world.

Hope the apple falls far far FAR from the tree.

    Lady Penguin in reply to Andy. | January 21, 2014 at 7:13 am

    I don’t ‘see’ the “trashing the mother of his kid to the world.” If he remains silent, then the deception to the public – which she supposedly wants to serve – is destructive. It’s about time men fought back…they’ve been silenced to long by the radical, man-hating feminists. The harm is far greater if he stays silent.

    Children are much more savvy today than previous generations; mother deciding her personal narcissistic desires were more important than they were is a fairly difficult issue to cope with.

      I’ve fought on the father’s rights front for 12 years now and spent many a legislative sessions pushing legislation so dads get screwed less in custody battles.

      Trashing and undermining the other parent is never cool.

        LSBeene in reply to Andy. | January 22, 2014 at 5:24 pm


        I also have fought in the MRA trenches. This woman used a man, and then dumped her kids. One of the kids wasn’t even HIS (from her previous marriage).

        I’m pretty sure at this point they know mommy has them as a 2nd or 3rd tier priority.

        As a kid who was denied his father for almost my entire formative life, I was very angry when I found out my mother had done that.

        I do not know, but I imagine that her kids well know that mommy ditched them, and only wants “a relationship” with them for photo-ops.

        If I were them – letting people know what a piss poor mom she is, as she tries to hold herself out as a “single mom” probably seems like sweet nectar.

Freddie Sykes | January 21, 2014 at 2:43 am

Jeff Davis got custody of the kids and child support. I wonder how good Wendy was at paying this support?
Wendy Davis’ Ex Asked a Court to Order Her Not to Use Drugs Before Seeing Her Kids

… It is also her ex-husband who asked a Texas District Court to issue a temporary restraining order against Wendy Davis in 2003.

In that order, the judge ordered that Wendy Davis “be immediately restrained from . . . using illegal drugs or consuming alcohol within 24 hours before or during the period of possession of or access to the child.”…

Hmmm. Yup, I’d say her campaign is all done except for the lawsuits!

NC Mountain Girl | January 21, 2014 at 6:04 am

The lesson of Davis and the national Democrat donor base seems to be that if a story seems too good to be true it probably isn’t.

Drag a $100 bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.

Other than Wendy Davis.

Were I the ex my singular response to her and her crew would be that they need to put everything in writing.

Need be I’d even go to a judge to make it so.

Did Wendy Davis, the Mother Warren of abortion, “rig” her marriage to achieve feminist fame within the bowels of Progressivism? Very pretentious. Must have been schooled under Liz.

It’s fascinating how people will weave a narrative about their background that fundamentally mischaracterizes it in every way. This isn’t 1950. It is very hard to suppress the truth if you’re not a Democrat president.

All in all Wendy has a lot of sociopathic characteristics (lying, repeatedly using loved ones for personal gain and then disposing of them, abandoning her children, etc.), even more so than the typical politician. Sociopaths are good at being chameleons. There’s no doubt in my mind that she had her route all mapped out in advance with her second husband–bilk him for the $$$ to pay for college/law school, then bail and take half his assets (the title co., at least) in the divorce. He’s 12 years older, this wasn’t a love match (from her viewpoint), it was expedient. And then of course her remorseless, strangely aggressive willingness to sacrifice the unborn to advance her political career. Most likely she hates children, which would explain the uber pro abortion stance and not wanting to be bothered dealing with even her own children. Real mother of the year material right here.

The more we find out about Wendy the more the hair will stand up on the back of our collective necks. This is one strange bird.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | January 21, 2014 at 12:18 pm

Anybody who thinks any of this matters to Democrats is delusional. Obama wrote a book filled with composite characters (i.e., non-existent figments of his imagination), and sold it as an autobiography to build his narrative. Yet he won re-election handily. Democrat voters know with certainty that Elizabeth Warren advantaged her career bas a an alleged Cherokee ancestry that is as phony as a $3 bill. Ted Kennedy won how many re-elections after it was known he was a slobbering drunkard, had been accused of rape by a young woman in Florida – and of course won his first election after he left a woman to die in a river so he could sober up? Bill Clinton had approval ratings of near 70% when he spoke at the Democrat Convention in 2012 – and there’s a list of at least six women who have accused him on the record of abusing his power to inappropriately violate them sexually.

Just hope Davis’s deranged lies about her personal history and psychotic personality that enables her to abandon her young children still matter to the independent/moderate squishes. At the rate society’s codes of morality/ethics are deteriorating (thanks in large part to what’s being taught in academia) I doubt it will matter to them in another decade.


    There are certainly idiots and “party folks” who vote purely for the (R).

    One thing that I appreciate about conservatives (not necessarily (R)’s) is that we TRY to have a single standard.

    I don’t excuse bad behavior from my folks, and then condemn the “other guy” (other party).

    But, you’re right – Wendy Davis is an “ends justify the means” person, not unlike how Bill Clinton was given a complete pass for his misogyny, sexual harrassment, and alleged (and believable) sexual assault charge.

    But, he supported abortion – so, all is forgiven.

    Wendy Davis is the female equivalent of the guy who ditches his loving and long term GF once he graduates Med / Law school to marry the hotter younger model. She’s scum. You don’t use a person’s life like that.

Maybe she’ll announce that she’s the Wendy the fast food restaurants are named after.
