Louie Gohmert: Wendy Davis Can't Be Trusted Because She Got Divorced After Law School

What must it be like, to live inside Louie's world?

I always used to vacillate: Is Louie Gohmert pandering, or is he really that stupid? All evidence seems to point to the latter, and this statement supports it:

In an interview with Newsmax today, Rep. Louie Gohmert said that Texas voters shouldn’t trust state senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis…because she has been divorced.

When host Ed Berliner asked if Davis “has found enough of the will and enough prayers to get her elected,” Gohmert replied that he thought that “she’s showing the same will she had when she let her husband paid for her to get through law school and then divorced him the day law school was finished and paid for, so she’s got a lot of will and that makes her interesting.”

The Texas congressman went on to say he never says “outrageous things to get the press.”
