A few years after Wendy Davis claimed in court that she had suffered damage to her mental health, a Texas court put Davis under a temporary restraining order prohibiting her from using drugs or alcohol within twenty-four hours of coming into contact with her children.
Folks, from here on out, the only card left for Wendy Davis to play is victim. She’s going to attack Greg Abbott, Texas’s Attorney General, for leaks he wasn’t responsible for. Her friends will accuse the liberal Dallas Morning News reporter of being a Republican. They’ll scream that Davis is being held to a different standard than a man. They’ll cast Abortion Barbie as the hero by casting her as the victim of rightwing smears. All we are doing is pointing out she’s built her case on a foundation of lies, half-truths, and fairy tales.
In documents obtained by RedState, Wendy Davis’s own child requested her father be her custodian. Likewise, in filing his divorce against Wendy Davis, her husband requested the court enter the temporary restraining order.
The court, without an evidentiary hearing, did so. See the temporary restraining order here. The court 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.”
The court also ordered Wendy Davis to keep out of her residence anyone she was having “intimate or dating relationship[s]” with while children were present between 10pm and 6am.
The Dallas Morning News reported Davis’s husband, who paid Davis’s way through Harvard Law School by cashing in his 401(K) and taking out a loan, claimed Davis committed adultery on him.
Davis’s husband got custody of the children and the court ordered Wendy Davis to pay child support.
