Protip: If you’re going to pick a political fight, game out where it might lead before firing your first salvo. If you don’t, you might end up like Wendy Davis.

Lately, the Democrat gubernatorial hopeless has been attacking the GOP nominee, Attorney General Greg Abbott, on “equal pay” laws. President Obama signed a federal one, but Davis is trying to force Abbott into supporting a state one. The media here haven’t bothered to ask Davis if she now thinks Obama’s is inadequate, or really, if such a law is even needed.

But it turns out that Davis does not practice what she preaches on equal pay.

Oops.

RedStateWomen.com issued the following the statement:

“RSW believes it’s important to walk the walk, if you’re going to talk the talk. Public information made accessible via the Texas Tribune Website, reveals Sen. Davis has failed to address the wage gap in her own back yard-The Texas Senate. In three significant categories, Republicans lead Democrats in closing the wage gap, hiring a greater number of females to run their office, and compensating them at a higher level than their Democrat counterparts. This is a stereotypical case of actions speaking louder than words.” -Cari Chistman, Executive Director, Red State Women 

The Democrats in the Texas Senate pay their female counterparts A LOT less than their male ones. In fact, as you can see below, Wendy Davis paid her female Chief of Staff a third less than her current male one.

The data is at the link.

It reveals three things: The Democrats are hypocrites, and phonies, and Wendy Davis remains an amateur.

Until the next dishonest, scurrilous Democrat attack…

"Wendy Davis paid her female Chief of Staff a third less than her current female one."

Should that statement read: "Wendy Davis paid her female Chief of Staff a third less than her current male one."

This is an important and funny piece. Hypocrisy is not only is a character flaw but it reveals important insights to ones genuine motives.

Still, I can't help but being a little disturbed at the reaction to Wendy's issue. I don't want Republicans to "out equality" Democrats - I want Republicans to stand for Liberty, Justice and the Rule of Law.

I keep seeing ads from her on Facebook, and it looks like her electoral strategy at this point is that she is a woman, and Republicans say nasty things about her. And judging from the comments of her Facebook ads, that's not a particularly successful message.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures; Texas already has the following two laws on the books
V.T.C.A., Gov’t Code § 659.001 Equal work requires equal pay in public employment
V.T.C.A., Gov’t Code § 21.051 Equal work requires equal pay in private employment

So Davis discriminates against men? Is that good, but the other way round is bad? Must all be paid equally regardless of duties and performance?

The nutty 'thinking' of the Leftists.

Do all those people have equivalent jobs?

Why should Davis be paying one person almost four times as much as another? Is that equal?

True for most feminists: invent a class of victims, demand useless and unrealistic changes in the law, be a hypocrite, and count on "it feels good" to carry the day.

if only the press would look at more democrat/feminist bullsh!it in this light.

100% true and 100% irrelevant. Facts no longer matter. Only narratives.

I can't agree with the headline. Wendy Davis is her own Waterloo! :D

Without modern technology and Texas-style peer pressure for beauty, Davis would be nothing more than Bella Abzug.
