..Jess McIntosh of Emily's List nails it.
Jess McIntosh addressing the republican attack on Wendy Davis' bio:
"..Let's take a look at what the actual discrepancies are there. She said she got divorced when she was 19..turns out she was separated at 19 and the divorce became official at 21.
Now I've been telling everyone for my entire life that my parents got divorced when I was 4. But I just texted my mom from the green room and it turns out that wasn't official until I was five.
I think anybody who has a divorce in their life knows the date the matters.
As for the trailer park; if Greg Abbott is really going to base his campaign around attacking her for not living as a single mother with her young daughter in a mobile home for long enough, that's going to be really tough to win over voters thinking that you're compassionate."

Perfect comeback; by flipping the script on the spun-up BS Jess has handily shown the same level of BS that is behind the bulk of republicans attacks - undoing the GOP re-write of the truth
So Kudos to Jess for pointing out the absurd (and that's putting it nicely) in the GOP framing. Hope to hear more telling like it really is just like this !
Just a little update :)
got to go set some more tile for now - back in awhile - thanks stopping by
