Earlier this week we reported Texas Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ gaffe about her opponent saying he “hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.”
At the time we explained that her opponent Greg Abbott cannot walk in her shoes, he has been in a wheel chair since he was 26-years-old after a tree fell on him while running and paralyzed him from the waist down. Perhaps Davis didn’t remember that because Abbott does not use his struggle as a campaign tool like Ms Davis does.
That statement her not remembering may have been incorrect as Project Veritas has released a video (below) showing her supporters at a Davis rally mocking his disability and mocking the fact that they had forged signatures:
Wendy Davis and Battleground Texas supporters are seen on camera making statements such as “Since he’s in a wheelchair and most the slogans are “Stand with Wendy” and “Stand with Texas Women”, isn’t that amazing to think of? He’s in a wheelchair and we want to stand with Wendy?”
In another instance they say, “Greg Abbott (The Attorney General of Texas) is not, he’s really not a sure thing, and he’s really not real electable. First of all he’s not good looking, he doesn’t speak very well, he doesn’t have a good personality, and he’s in a wheelchair.”
But that’s not it. When asked about forging signatures on absentee ballots, Deputy Voter Registrar and attorney Lisa Wortham covered her ears and then went on to admit, “I’ve seen people do that all the time.” Battleground Texas volunteer Celeste Grahm then added, “I don’t think it’s legal but I didn’t hear you say that.”
