Abbott sided against other victims of sexual assault

AUSTIN — Republican Greg Abbott, already denounced by his Democratic rival for ruling against a rape victim while on the Texas Supreme Court, sided against three other women who sued in sexual assault cases.

In five cases in which the victims had sued the assailant or a company for negligence in the attacks, Abbott decided against four during his tenure as a high court justice from 1995 to 2001, a review by The Dallas Morning News shows.

Abbott’s judicial actions have become a focal point in the race for governor, used by Democrat Wendy Davis in her first TV ad blasting him for favoring a business over a rape victim trying to sue that company.

Davis’ campaign said his decisions show a disturbing mind-set, “a consistent pattern of ruling against Texans who need him and for his old insider network.”

Abbott, elected attorney general after serving on the court, condemned the ad as a “desperate attack.”

1. Guilty as charged. Women are indeed desperate to stop rapists and their enablers and apologists.

Of course, they never admit to being rapist apologists or enablers, but it what they are.



In five cases in which the victims had sued the assailant or a company for negligence in the attacks, Abbott decided against four during his tenure as a high court justice from 1995 to 2001, a review by The Dallas Morning News shows.


So, the Dallas Morining News is desperate?

2. It's your record, Greg old boy. You can run from it, but you can't hide from it.

7. The ad referred to is damming.

Makes it crystal clear that other republican justices on the court sided with the victim. Only Abbott sided with the company.

I hope to see him tied to ted in future ads.
