Dave Carney, current Abbott consultant and former Perry, Gingrich and Dewhurst advisor, defends dishonest telemarketing calls
Yesterday, the Lone Star Project exposed an apparent telemarketing scam by a group called the Foundation for Justice for All. The group is placing a series of robo-calls urging Davis supporters to contribute to them and implying that the contribution will somehow help Wendy Davis. The calls were placed without the knowledge or authorization of anyone within the Davis campaign.
Abbott ruled against a Texas woman raped in her own home
Yesterday, in El Paso, Greg Abbott made a broad statement: "I'm proud to say there is nobody in the state of Texas who has done more to fight to help women than I have in the past decade." Abbott’s words are not just hyperbole, they are fundamentally dishonest. Greg Abbott’s record of indifference to the point of hostility toward Texas women and their families is extensive. The Lone Star Project has already documented much of it. Abbott’s statement yesterday, though, is an extraordinarily cynical and disturbing fabrication that can be directly and specifically rebutted by a dissenting opinion he wrote as a State Supreme Court Justice in 1998.
As Texas Attorney General, rather than serving as the people’s lawyer, Greg Abbott has used his office to promote his own partisan ambitions and to assist friends and contributors at the expense of Texas citizens. Abbott belongs to an entrenched GOP insider establishment that promotes the interests of mega-wealthy state and national right wing donors, cronies and ideologues.
Greg Abbott hasn't agreed to any debates, but he's already engaged in a heated back-and-forth, with himself. From one appearance to another, one brochure to another, and sometimes on the same day, Greg Abbott lurches from a Tea Party toady to a soft-in-the-middle milquetoast.
