Project Veritas is out with a new undercover video showing staffers from Battleground Texas, an organization full of Obama for America alumni with a goal of turning Texas blue, openly mocking Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for being in a wheelchair. Abbott is running against Democratic State Senator Wendy Davis for the governorship.
Battleground Texas supports Davis and is working very hard on her behalf in the Lone Star State. The video shows Davis visiting the Battleground Texas offices where she thanked staffers for their help and refers to the group as “the secret weapon” to winning.
“I really wonder how this is going to work out since he’s in a wheelchair since and most of the slogans are ‘Stand with Wendy,” one staffer is seen saying in the video.
“First of all he’s not good looking, he doesn’t speak very well, he doesn’t have a good personality and he’s in a wheelchair,” another woman is heard saying as someone laughs loudly in the background.
According to Project Veritas, the comments were caught while investigators were looking into Obamacare navigator fraud. This isn’t the first time Battleground Texas has openly mocked Abbott’s disability. In October 2013, the group sent out an email with the “joke,” “Greg Abbott walks into a house in El Paso.” Earlier this week, Davis came under criticism for saying Abbott hasn’t “walked a day in her shoes.”
Attorney General Abbott has been in a wheel chair since he was 26-years-old after a tree fell on him while running and paralyzed him from the waist down.
