AG Abbott Thanks Tweeter Who Calls Sen Davis Offensive Names

Updated: Sunday, August 18 2013, 08:26 PM CDT

The social media hemisphere was set ablaze when a Dallas attorney tweeted his support for Attorney General Greg Abbott’s run for governor while insulting possible runner Senator Wendy Davis in the process.

On Saturday, a tweet originating from attorney Jeff Rutledge’s Twitter account appeared to show support for Abbott’s campaign. The tweet states “@GregAbbott_TX would absolutely demolish idiot @WendyDavisTexas in Gov race – run Wendy run! Retard Barbie to learn life lesson. #TGDN @tcot”

A tweet originating from Abbott’s account responded a few hours later, stating “@jefflegal @tcot – Jeff, thanks for your support. #TGDN”.

It has not been confirmed whether the tweets from either party are in fact from Rutledge or Abbott or a member of their staffs.  We are working to confirm this but a member of Abbott’s communication staff has said he cannot comment at this time.

We will have more information as this story develops.
