Texas Dems are really pulling out all the stops to try and block election integrity – which the American people want – from passing in Texas.
A bunch of Dems fled the state – they hopped (mask-free and with a case of beer) 0n a private plane and high-tailed it to the DC swamp (where they actually belong), in order to stall a vote on election integrity that includes voter ID.
Here’s a photo of this group of Kommunist Karens on their private jet. Must be nice to be a liberal elite, right?
ON PLANE TO DC: Texas Democratic lawmakers are leaving state to break quorum to stop Republican voting bill. Veteran Capitol observers say this is unchartered territory. Photo from Democrat on the plane. https://t.co/YOuOMb0A2m pic.twitter.com/abWoARvFIC

Gee, do you think these idiots had to show their ID to buy the beer and/or get on the plane, or when they checked into their hotel?
Ted Cruz also weighed in:
The Texas Democrats who have pulled this political stunt by flying to Washington, D.C. almost surely had to show ID to get on their jet, yet they’re throwing a fit because they don’t want basic election integrity steps strengthened in Texas.

Well, looks like these Karens are all smiles now, but Governor Abbott has something waiting for them when they return that will likely have them crying…JAIL.
Fox News reported that Gov. Greg Abbott, the Texas Republican, criticized state Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., on Monday in an effort to deprive the Legislature of a quorum, thus the ability to vote on the GOP’s sweeping elections overhaul bill.
Abbott appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday to defend the bill and say the missing lawmakers will be arrested upon their return to the state. He said members of the Texas House of Representatives who are still in the state can call for the arrests of their colleagues who do not show up to vote. The one caveat is the arrest has to be made in the state.
“Once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business,” he said.
Republicans argue the contentious bill would provide greater election security, while Democrats charge it would suppress voter turnout of minorities.
The exodus was the second time that Democratic lawmakers have staged a walkout on the voting overhaul, a measure of their fierce opposition to proposals they say will make it harder for young people, people of color, and people with disabilities to vote.
But like last month’s effort, there remains no clear path for Democrats to permanently block the voting measures or a list of other contentious GOP-backed proposals up for debate.
Just in: A Texas senate aide tells me that a number of Texas Democratic senators have also left for Washington, but not enough to break a quorum in the senate.
A Republican Texas senate aide says that a quorum is expected and that they will likely take up SB1 today.

So, basically, all this amounts to a PR stunt that is costing taxpayers money and time.
All of these bums need to be voted out of office.
The American people are sick and tired of the silly and dangerous political games that Dems are playing.
