The bad news is is confirmed for the Texas Democrats who fled the state in order to avoid doing their job.
According to Fox News, “two more Texas Democrats have tested positive for coronavirus during their trip to Washington, D.C., just one day after three of their colleagues learned they had contracted the virus as well.”
Per the report:
[T]he number of COVID-positive Texas state lawmakers in the nation’s capital is now five. The news comes on the same day that Vice President Kamala Harris dropped by Walter Reed Medical Center for a “routine” visit after meeting with the group of lawmakers just last week.
The group of Democrats fled the Lone Star State to deny Republicans in the state legislature a quorum, which refers to the minimum number of lawmakers needed to carry out legislative business.
Facts matter. Reckless rhetoric doesn’t.
The Texas election integrity bill doesn’t disenfranchise Texas voters.
It makes elections fair and uniform.
Anyone saying that the bill denies people the right to vote is simply lying. https://t.co/dkpxirug4F
