Wendy Davis supporters think opponent being disabled is hysterical

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a video Thursday of Wendy Davis supporters mocking her opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for being disabled.

The video featured members of the group Battleground Texas.

The organization, whose stated goal is to "turn Texas blue," was founded by National Field Director for the 2012 Obama campaign, Jeremy Bird. The "grassroots" effort was discussed at the Colbert Report.

As reported at WND, Battleground Texas supporters have thrown their weight behind Wendy Davis for Governor of the state. Davis, "whose claim to fame is a filibuster in the state legislature against abortion limits that later were passed anyway," was also in the news this week for fudging her biography, as reported by Howard Portnoy at Liberty Unyielding.

In O'Keefe's video, one of Davis' supporters says of Greg Abbott that he may have a "personality disorder," and continues,

“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.”

The comment was greeted with laughter from another volunteer. Additionally, Lisa Wortham, a deputy voter registrar said,

“I'm really wondering how this is going to work out, since he’s in a wheelchair, and the slogans are 'stand with Wendy."

Aside from mocking Abbott, Wortham is "asked about forging signatures on absentee ballots." She mockingly covered her ears and then said,

"People do that all the time.'"

One of Wendy Davis' supporters was also captured saying, "I heard from someone that she's too stupid to be governor." His comment was also greeted with laughter. Who are these people?
