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.

“[M]utually beneficial dating arrangements” are nothing more, or less, than thinly veiled acts of prostitution. They are only legal because, presumably, there is no prior negotiation between the parties to determine precisely how "beneficial" the "arrangement" will be for each party.

It appears, in essence, that this was Miss Wendy's intention in dating Jeff Davis.

A married single mom
Who is loudly pro abortion
Married rich and fled
But please don't think
That is extortion
19 is the new 21 or
Is it the reverse
Take the money and run
In a fine Gucci purse
The truth doesn't matter
As long as it's flashian
When you go through your life
As a Dine and Kardashian

I've already asked this, but no one else seems to be asking: where's Hillary!

And, isn't this just damage control, the "progressives" in Texas outing Wendy as early as possible so that either she folds now and someone else can stand in, or at least, it doesn't come out in September.

Perhaps, but apparently Wendy decided her sugar lifestyle came with too many calories so, she quit cold turkey . . . .

I'd comment about the shadenfreude of the endorsement, but the system would certainly dump it, so I'll let the readers imagine the appropriate crude, vulgar stuff I'd have written.

" I’d venture that most mothers and fathers cannot imagine doing what Wendy Davis did."
The number of children living with both of their parents is a thin majority nationwide, around 60% according to the Census Bureau. Apparently waaay too many mothers and fathers can imagine doing what Wendy Davis did.

Well, Wendy's personal narrative is all she has to run on. "Single mom living in a trailer, then graduating from Harvard law school." Criminy, that was THE big story on Wendy's own website!
She cannot list much in legislative accomplishments; she cannot list much in executive experience; she cannot list much about her successes in private law practice. Well, she was #1 in her class at TCU.
The whole "MOM" fasade falls apart because she abandoned her own 8 year old to the stepdad, and abandoned their 2 year old.
I guess all Wendy has left are the pink shoes.

Like most dads, I've had moments when I'd have sold either or both for a small sum and taken a post-dated check from a Nigerian bank...but it would never have felt good to leave my kids and sweetheart.
Some time in the next 3-10 years, they'll probably both become parents and then we'll have our payback, just like our parents did...
