A tea party activist, attorney and former executive director of South Carolina's Republican Party went on a spree of sexist attacks on Texas gubernatorial candidate and state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) last week.
Todd Kincannon, who resigned from his leadership role at the GOP organization in 2010, linked Davis to prostitution, drugs and Monica Lewinsky after a Dallas Morning News article pointed out some discrepancies in the stories Davis has told about her background -- including when she was officially divorced from her first husband (at 21, not 19), how long she lived in a mobile home and how she paid for law school.
In the wake of the revelations, Kincannon and other conservatives launched attacks on Davis' background and argued that she was a negligent parent for attending Harvard Law School in the early 1990s while her second husband took care of her children:
Wendy Davis has done even more to damage modern feminism than Monica Lewinsky playing Human Humidor with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office.
The best thing about the Wendy Davis fiasco is this: It proves that you can still call a whore a whore. Feminazis ain't won yet, my friends.
Wendy Davis stimulates the kneepad economy. And a lot of penises. RT @Shadowboxer50 I wonder how many knee pads she went through at Harvard?
Wendy Davis has solved America's student loan crisis! Just find a dumbass to pay off your loans in exchange for sex. #Hookernomics
LOL! You know there ain't no such thing. RT @Whatwesettlefor The real prize would be pictures of her raising her kids.
BREAKING: Wendy Davis makes emergency phone call to Bill Clinton: "Bill, is your humidor running?"
"In other news, Wendy Davis took a short break from blowing 'campaign contributors' today to condemn remarks made by Mike Huckabee..."
LOL! Nobody has any respect for Wendy Davis. Not even Wendy Davis RT #lyricthompson REAL men have respect spineless bitches talk shit online

Kinkannon told HuffPost Live last year that he tweets inflammatory comments because he enjoys "watching people go nuts."
"One of the things I like to do on Twitter is I'll tweet something inflammatory, kind of borderline crazy-sounding just for fun. And I enjoy watching people go nuts," Kinkannon said. "One of the best things about it is if you say something that's borderline offensive or if it is offensive, the people that attack you and say just the awfulest [sic] things about you, they do the very thing that they accuse you of."
South Carolina's Republican establishment attempted to distance itself from Kinkannon after some of his more virulent tweets received attention nationally.
