Last Monday 60 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.
Democrat lawmakers were seen packed on a private plane, maskless, flying from Texas to DC. Five of them have now tested positive for Covid.
The state lawmakers actually believe that flying on private jets to DC, dining at posh DC restaurants, and enjoying air-conditioned hotel rooms is comparable to George Washington crossing the Delaware River.
The $1.5 million, taxpayer funded, trip to DC, where the lawmakers receive a daily stipend, is a huge ‘sacrifice’ for these Democrats.
One lawmaker tried to illustrate the personal sacrifice she made by posting a photo of her bra and panties air drying to her social media account.
“You bet we’re recognizing & honoring our country’s heritage. As most Texans, tho, this is what we’re doing tonight—using whatever is accessible, uwashing (sic) our clothes in the sink,”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said the Democrat lawmakers will be arrested as soon as they return to Texas.
