Greg Abbott Says Mean Old Wendy Davis Is Picking On 'A Guy In A Wheelchair'

Wendy Davis isn't picking on 'a guy in a wheelchair,' Greg. She's picking on a hypocritical jackass in a wheelchair.

Via TPM. Oh, boo fucking hoo. Shameless hypocrite Greg Abbott, the Republican running for Texas governor, is now embracing victim politics: "I'm a guy in a wheelchair and mean old Wendy Davis is picking on me!" Just a reminder: Abbott picked up $10M in settling his own case, then quickly went to work on passing a settlement cap, making sure no one else in Texas could ever collect an adequate insurance settlement. Is $250K enough for other people who end up in a wheelchair, Greg?

But that's not even the worst thing you can say about our Greggie. He's also a moron:

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) on Monday night brushed off an attack ad focused on his paralysis that his gubernatorial opponent state Sen. Wendy Davis' (D) campaign is running.

Davis released an ad last week that features a wheelchair and a voiceover that says "A tree fell on Greg Abbott. He sued and got millions. Since then he spent his career working against other victims."

"My reaction is that if she wants to attack a guy in a wheelchair, that's her prerogative," Abbott said on Fox News' "Hannity." “As for me, I’m running a different type of campaign. I am running a campaign that’s focused on solving the problems of Texans.”

"I don't think it's going to sell real well," he added later.
