Wendy Davis Accuses Greg Abbott of Supporting Interracial Marriage Ban

Wendy Davis Accuses Greg Abbott of Supporting Interracial Marriage Ban

Texas elections, or the Wild West?

http://abc13.com/politics/abbott-davis-face-off-in-gubernatorial-debate/316288/

We’re less than 6 hours into the first day of early voting in Texas, and we’ve already documented evidence of first (electoral) blood between gubernatorial candidates Greg Abbott and Wendy Davis.

Behold:

These tweets source back to Abbott’s recent interview with the San Antonio Express-News editorial board, in which he brushed aside questions regarding a hypothetical (and highly unconstitutional) scenario regarding a ban on interracial marriage (click through to Salon if you hit a paywall):

In an interview with San Antonio Express-News editorial board, flagged by Talking Points Memo, Abbott, who is married to a Latina, objected to answering the “hypothetical” question.

“Right now, if there was a ban on interracial marriage, that’s already been ruled unconstitutional,” he told the paper. “And all I can do is deal with the issues that are before me … The job of an attorney general is to represent and defend in court the laws of their client, which is the state Legislature, unless and until a court strikes it down.”

Challenged on the vagueness of his answer, Abbott continued to evade the question.

“Actually, the reason why you’re uncertain about it is because I didn’t answer the question. And I can’t go back and answer some hypothetical question like that,” Abbott said.

He didn’t “evade” their “gotcha” question; he stated that the ban would be unconstitutional and moved on.

But even if we allow ourselves to assume that there is indeed some sort of secret Greg Abbott Interracial Marriage Ban Conspiracy brewing at campaign headquarters, there’s still a bit of a problem with Davis’s allegations:

It’s no surprise that something like this would come seeping out of the campaign of a woman who used an ad placement to mock Greg Abbott’s disability, but given the fact that Cecilia Abbott is set to become the first Latina First Lady of Texas (a fact that the Abbott campaign hasn’t stopped plugging since March,) this is one gutter roll that will backfire spectacularly for the Davis campaign.

For what it’s worth, the Real Clear Politics Average has Abbott up by 12 points, which explains a lot about Davis’s eleventh hour strategy.

Comments

Apparently, inter-species marriage is legal in Texas also, since Wendy Davis was married to a human being before she decided that raising her children was too inconvenient.

Now I can clearly see why they call it a “bull”horn.

Not qualified to vote for dog catcher.

Toilet Paper Mau-maus (TPM) is one of the MOST scuzzy of the hyper-scuzzy moonbat Lie-0-tron generators extant.

Abbot is a lot of things “Mommy Dearest” Davis is not, including a good spouse and parent. PLUS he’s a fine lawyer and a remarkable human being.

Whadda bitch Davis has shown herself to be. And how clearly she has sold her integrity for an office.

Disgusting.

    Integrity?! What integrity?

      Ragspierre in reply to DINORightMarie. | October 20, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      Well, interesting question, Marie.

      My personal philosophy is that every day you are sent, you have the chance to grasp your integrity. You have a chance to assert your claim to honor.

      IF you did wrong yesterday, TODAY you can repudiate that wrong and do right. Even if you threw integrity away yesterday, you can pick it up today, and you can add to it day-by-day. Just like today’s despicable act isn’t made right by all your honorable conduct of yesterday.

      If that makes sense.

        Rags, it makes perfect sense. I wish I had said it so I could strut around showing off my integrity. (j/k)

        phunctor in reply to Ragspierre. | October 20, 2014 at 8:39 pm

        What is reputation but the aggregate estimate of integrity? Easily lost, slowly regained. Still, there’s a way back. Chuck Colson comes to mind. But it’s a long road.

    she and her supporters bottomed out very early, back when the whole filibuster hubbub was going on. what can you say about a group that is so hellbent on “abortion on demand, any time, for any reason, without shame, and FREE FREE FREE!” that they came to the state house prepared to fling their on fesces, urine and used “sanitary” products on their political opponents?

      platypus in reply to Paul. | October 20, 2014 at 4:44 pm

      It says all you need to know about the filth that supports this fleabag. I cannot picture Texas being led by such a person who attracts those kind of slugs.

    Despite every mean, despicable thing she did, Joan Crawford was still a better person and mother than Abortion Barbie.

Pathetic !

DINORightMarie | October 20, 2014 at 4:03 pm

I want to know about the 2nd half of that second tweet: how in the H3LL does she assert that Abbot supports a “poll tax” – because he supports the voter ID law, perhaps?

The answer to that one: an ID is required to sign up for ObamaCare. And then there’s this. Use that ID!! Not racist, not discriminatory, and certainly not a “poll tax” in any way, shape, manner, or form.

Pathetic.

    JimMtnViewCaUSA in reply to DINORightMarie. | October 20, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    You know, when the Supreme Court strikes down vote ID laws, especially when the law has been on the books for a year and the decision is made a couple of weeks before the election, I want to ask: is photo ID needed for admission to attend the sessions of the Court?

    I’d like to see them deal with “admission without ID”. Also, instead of metal detectors and the like, just post a sign “Violence against the Justices is not permitted”. See how many of them make it to year’s end.

      Ragspierre in reply to JimMtnViewCaUSA. | October 20, 2014 at 4:21 pm

      There isn’t a Federal courthouse in the land that I know of you can enter without an ID. You cannot attend your NECESSARY bankruptcy hearing without one. You can’t appear as a witness for someone in a Federal criminal or civil matter without one. You cannot attend your own family member’s trial without one. You sure cannot be a spectator during a Federal procedure of ANY kind without one.

        platypus in reply to Ragspierre. | October 20, 2014 at 4:48 pm

        I do not relish correcting you but I used to go in the fed courthouse here in Tacoma without ID. The way they deal with it is to provide an escort for you. I’m not sure what would happen if I told them that I had a subpoena with my name on it and that if it was good enough for a judge it should be good enough for his flunkies.

    I need an ID to get into work every day.

    If I forget to bring it, I am sent home, written up, and lose out on a day’s pay.

The old saying “Character is what you do when no one is looking” apparently never made it to Davis’s house. She took a promising career in the Demorat party and turned it into a personal taboo so that NO ONE will ever ask her to run for anything again. How many times will she double down on stupid?

What a teeny, tiny, little, small, minuscule, atrophied brain she has.

Per Jeff B., co-blogger at Ace of Spades, re: Wendy Davis: “I have spoken to TX Dem insiders who, bluntly, say that “she’s looking for an MSNBC gig.” Heard it 3 sep. times.”

Every man, woman, and child who pays a tax for something other than voluntary consumption is paying a “poll tax”. So, anyone who has been wrangled to participate in, for example, Obamacare, through implicit consent — notable something animals are exempt from — is effectively paying a “poll tax”. The consequence of forgoing this reform is to be audited and hounded by the IRS, but you can still vote, right?

Excessive legal and unmeasured illegal immigration devalues and disenfranchises, respectively, an individual vote. So, in effect, you are paying a progressive poll tax.

Perhaps she’s referring to elective abortion, which actually increases the value of an individual vote, thereby reducing the poll tax, through the premeditated murder of around 2 million Americans annually.

Vote for Davis! She will abort… I mean, reduced the poll tax. Maybe. Possibly. In principle.

Of course, Hispanics are not a separate “race”.

But apparently someone quipped on twitter that Abbott’s marriage doesn’t count as interracial to Wendy because they are both Repubs.

I like Abbott, but he and all other pubblies need to learn to put the press in their place in situations such as this. The best answer would have been to look at her and ask in an incredulous tone, “Are you really suggesting that the Texas state government and governor would actually pass a law making mixed marriages illegal in 2014”

    cazinger in reply to jack burton. | October 22, 2014 at 8:01 pm

    I could not agree more. I could totally see him asking this back and then following it up with “Have you met my wife???”

    If the reporter clung to this line of questioning, he could always follow up more with “Are you suggesting I would support a law which would make my own marriage illegal???”

theduchessofkitty | October 20, 2014 at 7:17 pm

As a Latina, I feel truly free to say this: WENDY DAVIS, ¡IDIOTA!

    VetHusbandFather in reply to theduchessofkitty. | October 20, 2014 at 8:21 pm

    You are right, Abortion Barbie is an apt name for her, not because she looks like a Barbie, but because she has the intellect of a plastic doll.

VetHusbandFather | October 20, 2014 at 8:09 pm

I guess his wife is one of those “white-Hispanics”.

I suspect that Wendy Davis, or crucial members of her team, actually believe the BS coming from the Democratic Party at the national level. This can lead to some bad mistakes. The rest of us aren’t living in the fever swamps.

looks like some of the bleach has leached into her brain …

Eastwood Ravine | October 21, 2014 at 1:27 am

The real question about the Davis candidacy is how much does it drag down the handful of other Democrat candidates in the election.

Fortunately, I think most Texas voters know Mrs. Abbott is Hispanic and can see right through this bull-puckey.

#wendywontsay she won’t have sloppy public sex with a lizard creature from another universe.

But the lizard critters HAVE sent messaging saying they are insulted by the implication…
