Texas Democrat State Legislators have illegally fled the state to put a stop to voter security laws.
They are hiding out in Washington, D.C. to avoid being arrested.
And now Democrats are shaking with anger after Texas’ Governor exposed their big hypocrisy.
Following the 2020 election, dozens of states are passing laws to secure the vote.
The massive expansion of vote-by-mail caused by coronavirus opened the door to widespread voter fraud through ballot harvesting.
In Texas, Governor Greg Abbott recently called a special session of the state legislature to vote on a number of bills to secure the vote.
Democrats are most furious about one that would require those voting by mail to include their ID number and last four digits of their social security number on the ballot.
That will help ensure that the person who filled out the ballot is the person it was assigned to, instead of somebody who harvested the ballot to fill out on their own.
But instead of actually debating the bills, Democrat state legislators fled the state in private jets so the legislature couldn’t reach a quorum, which is required for the bills to be voted on.
They chose to flee to Washington, D.C. for two reasons.
One, they are out of the jurisdiction of the Texas Rangers, who can arrest them for abandoning their duties.
But the main reason is so they can lobby for bills to federalize elections.
They are lobbying for Democrat measures to mandate vote-by-mail nationally, which would rollback any such law Texas would pass.
In order to pass such a bill, Democrats are attempting to eliminate the filibuster, which would allow bills to be passed in the U.S. Senate with a simple majority.
Governor Greg Abbott was for his reaction during a Monday interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham.
Abbott said, “One word: Hypocrisy. They are using a filibuster to flee the state of Texas to plead with the president to do away with the filibuster in Washington, D.C. That is the example of hypocrisy on its face. And that’s one reason why they’re losing the arguments with regard to voting on this issue and other issues in the state of Texas.”
During that interview, Abbott also stated that Democrats will be arrested and brought to the Capitol as soon as they enter the state of Texas.
“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.
