Wendy Davis' highly publicized divorce was splashed across headlines nationwide. Alongside her ex-husband, they owned Safeco, which they sold to cover their high asset divorce settlement. Now that she is running for governor of Texas, the financial details of the divorce have come under scrutiny.
According to the Dallas Morning News, a person familiar with the settlement, reported Davis' share to be six million dollars, which Davis' representative is claiming is incorrect. He has requested that the publication retract the statement and list their source providing that settlement figure. The amount that Davis collected from the sale of Safeco is the financial seed in her run for governor. After the divorce, she was issued a contract naming her an officer of the succeeding entity, Republic Title of Texas.
