A dating service that pairs wealthy “sugar daddies” with “sugar babies” for “mutually beneficial dating arrangements” has endorsed Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis.
SeekingArrangement.com’s Friday announcement followed a recent report in the Dallas Morning News which detailed a number of discrepancies in Davis’ personal narrative, including that she left a man 13 years her senior the day after he made the last payment for her Harvard Law School education.
“Wendy Davis is proof that the sugar lifestyle is empowering,” seeking arrangements founder and CEO Brandon Wade said in his endorsement. “It can take a single mom from squalor to scholar, or in this case from the trailer park to Harvard, and a seat in the Senate. The sugar lifestyle creates an opportunity for women to transcend the single mother stereotypes.”
According to the service, single mothers like Davis, are the site’s second largest demographic — or as the news-savvy site puts it — “561,000 single moms follow in Wendy Davis’ footsteps.”
And while Seeking Arrangements is known for attracting free publicity by tying its service to current events, the 2.7 million-member site is not the first to put Davis in that “sugar baby” category.
Thursday afternoon Todd Kincannon, a former executive director of the South Carolina GOP, tweeted the suggestion that Davis could be the organizations spokeswoman.
“BREAKING: Wendy Davis ending campaign; has agreed to become spokesbabe for SeekingArrangement .com, a college tuition sugar daddy website,” he tweeted.
At this point however the organization has only offered their endorsement, not an official offer to be their spokeswoman.
