Just kidding. She “won” the endorsement of a “sugar daddy” service, according to the Daily Caller.
A dating service that pairs wealthy “sugar daddies” with “sugar babies” for “mutually beneficial dating arrangements” has endorsed Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis.
SeekingArrangement.com’s Friday announcement followed a recent report in the Dallas Morning News which detailed a number of discrepancies in Davis’ personal narrative, including that she left a man 13 years her senior the day after he made the last payment for her Harvard Law School education.
“Wendy Davis is proof that the sugar lifestyle is empowering,” seeking arrangements founder and CEO Brandon Wade said in his endorsement. “It can take a single mom from squalor to scholar, or in this case from the trailer park to Harvard, and a seat in the Senate. The sugar lifestyle creates an opportunity for women to transcend the single mother stereotypes.”
Yeah, that’s not really the hear-me-roar bootstrappy origins story that Davis has been peddling. Not by a mile.
And I was wrong about “ending” her week. It’s only Friday, and there’s still time for the full implications of her real life story to sink in before the week is done.
The fact is, once you’re a parent, “Now is not a good time for me” just won’t cut it. You can choose to be a present parent or an absent parent, but you’re still a parent. Choices have consequences, and I’d venture that most mothers and fathers cannot imagine doing what Wendy Davis did.
