Meet The Real-Life Leslie Knope Who Fought The Good Fight And Lost Tonight

By Joanna Robinson | Miscellaneous | June 26, 2013 | Comments ()


As of the publication of this piece it remains unclear whether or not the State Senate's vote on SB 5 was conducted before midnight. If it's proven the voting was done after the 12:00am deadline, then it's invalidated. But no matter what the outcome, I think it's important that we take a moment to applaud this woman, Wendy Davis, for her strength and commitment to a cause. It's rare and it's stirring. And because we're a pop culture website, I'll put it in words we can all readily relate to.

UPDATE: Lt. Governor Dewhurst officially announces that the 12:03 AM time stamp is valid and that SB5 missed the midnight deadline. LOUD NOISES.
