At an event attended by several disabled supporters, Wendy Davis on Monday brushed aside criticism of her controversial "wheelchair ad" and repeatedly blasted her Republican challenger as a "hypocrite."
"In 1984, Greg Abbott sought out and received justice following a horrible injury, rightly so…receiving millions of dollars. And I'm glad, he deserved justice for the terrible tragedy that he endured," Davis said at her Fort Worth, Texas, field office. "But then he turned around and built his career working to deny the very same justice that he received to his fellow Texans rightly seeking it for themselves."
She added, "Greg Abbott got his justice. Why doesn't he believe that a rape survivor or a person with a disability or a victim paralyzed forever…should get justice too? What makes Greg Abbott think it's okay to deny them, his fellow Texans, the justice that he rightly went to court to receive?"
