AUSTIN, Texas — Democrats in the Texas Legislature on Monday began bolting for Washington, D.C., and said they were ready to remain there for weeks in a second revolt against a GOP overhaul of election laws, forcing a dramatic new showdown over voting rights in America. One large group was set to leave Austin on private planes before the GOP could pass a voting bill in a special legislative session ordered by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott(snip) It was not immediately clear how many of the 67 Democrats in the Texas House of Representatives planned to go, but it was expected to be enough to bring the Legislature to a halt.


According to the NYT, 51 took part. What a bunch of low rent types!

COWARDS!! What was it the Zero said? Oh, yeah - "elections have consequences". Do what you were elected to do and VOTE. If the other side has more votes, tough luck. The only explanation is they know the new legislation will prevent their election fraud.

The governor called a special session for this voting bill and other "priorities". The Republican leadership should call this to the floor beginning Day One and make the Dems stew in their dereliction. Abbott should be on TV daily decrying the failure of the cowardly Democrats to represent their constituencies by actually voting on the bill. There should be no quarter given politically for this stunt, which is not unique to Texas politics. IIRC Wisconsin Dems did the same a few years ago. Now. let's see how much guts the Texas Republicans have.

Gov. Abbot should do one of two things. Ground their Planes. Say they have to check it for something, then send the Texas Rangers to bring them back to work. Or, Call another Special Session and have the doors locked and guarded by Rangers until business in finished! Enough. Exactly how much does it cost to rent to Private Jets? Taxpayers won't like that one bit!!

The private jets will most likely be furnished by people like Michael Dell who favors voter fraud or some other rich leftist - maybe facebook. The special session only last for a certain number of days but the governor can just keep calling them one after another. Probably not much can be done to stop the plane legally, although you can bet Patrick will be looking at possibilities. Texas Rangers can't go over state lines but they durn sure can and will detain the dims when they step foot back in the state. They can delay, but all it does is make the voters more angry with them. They'll just lose a few more seats in the next election.

Unless they have some deep pockets benefactors footing the bill for their room and board whilst they hide out in DC, some of these representatives of the people will start feeling the pinch after a while. I doubt that they are all sufficiently independently wealthy to hide out for several weeks. Keep the legislature in session for as long as it takes to break them. Just more dem symbolism over substance. Eventually they will return home with their tails tucked between their legs and be forced to show up. Either that or they can resign en masse thereby denying a quorum, but that ain't happening.

This is self-inflicted by Abbott. If he was serious about voting issues, the issues would have been early in the original session before the Dems got *anything* they wanted, rather than being tacked on at the end in a special session. Shame on Abbott! And I live in Austin.

One of the oddest things about Western man is that he is much more willing to kill over abstract ideas than he is over practical items. Wars for land or mineral rights tend to be short and relatively bloodless. One side wants the land held by another or maybe they want access to some natural resource. Negotiations fail, hostilities begin, and after the armies fight, a new round of talks settles the matter. The disputes over ideas, on the other hand, end in catastrophe. One side decides that the other side is believing the wrong things or is organizing its society in a way that offends them. Because the spark of
