At the Dallas Morning News Wayne Slater has an article on Texas state senator Wendy Davis, who is running for governor. Slater notes discrepancies in her background: she was 21, not 19, when she was divorced; lived only a few months in a mobile home; and her second husband paid for half of her college and law school educations.
An email to BuzzFeed the Davis campaign said: “At the age of 19 I was a teenage mother living alone with my daughter in a trailer and struggling to keep afloat on my way to a divorce. My story is not unique, it is the story of tens of thousands of women across Texas who struggle economically in the face of divorce.”
