Texas House Democrats

More than 50 Texas House Democrats fled the state Monday and headed  to Washington, D.C. to halt the passage of two GOP-backed sweeping election reform bills.

The measures in the bills include ending drive-thru and 24-hour polling places, banning ballot drop boxes, and empowers partisan poll watchers. They are said to be designed to ensure the integrity of the vote by preventing voter fraud.

Democrats say they will restrict voting access and will disproportionately impact voters of color in the state.

Three Texas Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C. test positive for coronavirus

They will be forced to isolate for 10 days

By Andrew Mark Miller

Several of the Texas Democrats who fled the state capital to avoid voting on an election integrity bill have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Three of the 60 Texas House Democrats tested positive for the virus while staying in Washington, D.C., according to Texas House Democratic Caucus leadership.

One of the members found out about their positive test late on Friday evening but did not have symptoms, officials say. All House members were notified of the positive tests and were all tested themselves immediately.

The caucus says that the two other members found out about their positive test on Saturday.

I wish illness on no one, and hope for a speedy recovery of those infected. Masks would have made no difference anyway.

  1. corona virus. is that another one beside the CHINA VIRUS???? or is it caused by smoking Corona cigars????

    • rgr769 says:

      I like to call it the ChiCom virus, as no one canclaim legitimately claim that evinces prejudice against the Chinese people. There are a great many Chinese people all around the world that have nothing to do with the evil murdering regime of the Chinese Communist Party, which rules mainland China with a totalitarian Marxist/Communist form of one party government.

    Grandstanding at its finest. Reading into the proposed voting laws it seems to be straightforward AND a method to prevent voter fraud. Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things. LBJ did a fine job of teaching demonrats how to steal elections in Texas a long time ago and they have only gotten better at it.

    Here’s a good linky to the Fox Article; 12K + comments and counting;

      D-rats want voting laws and systems that are easily susceptible to voting fraud. In addition, they want to import as many third world poor people as possible to replace our native population. It is their plan for one-party rule in perpetuity. Most Progs, including zerobama, admire the ChiCom form of government. Occasionally, they even admit it.

    Lots of fully vaccinated people testing positive.

  4. David says:

    The Dems are all upset over infringements of voting rights like being made to provide a driver’s license number! Or, if that is too onerous an ID number (which Texas provides free)! Or if that is too hard, the last 4 on their SS number! Real onerous infringement, huh…

  5. Poetrooper says:

    That grinning, homely mutt dead-center foreground is the perfect poster child for liberal women.

    Perhaps Lars, who knows absolutely everything about absolutely everything, will come on here and explain to us why so many liberal women are so damnably unattractive and personally unpleasant while so many conservative women are both physically attractive and personable, a rule that seems particularly applicable to female politicians.

    As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

    In this instance, that’s belaboring the obvious…

  6. Poetrooper says:

    Ol’ Poe stands corrected. Here’s a female Democrat who’s lovely–literally:

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Someone’s having a bad 2021.. police raid that reveals crack and guns, lose a primary, lose the command staff on your police force and a incitement for guns and child endangerment.

      All that’s missing is a suitcase full of cash, an affair and a dead body to make it complete…

    • NHSparky says:

      And one of the gentlemen I’m working for keeps asking me why I won’t move to NY.

      I’d list the reasons, but I retire in less than 20 years.

  7. NHSparky says:

    I went to DC and all I got was this shitty virus.

    • Roh-Dog says:

      Let’s hope they stay away from the gentleman thats carrying monkeypox, flew from Lagos to ATL to DAL this week.
      Isn’t this timeline the bees’ knees?

      • 11B-Mailclerk says:

        Fortunately, monkeypox isn’t terribly contagious, or terribly lethal.

        Hard to believe, sometimes, that we are the same nation that fought a successful Revolution against
        a global Superpower, while dealing with endemic smallpox. (30+% lethal and highly contagious)

  8. MCPO USN says:

    That picture should be a poster for condoms.

    • Commissar says:

      Why, did it make you horny?

      • MCPO USN says:

        Not hardly. Why would you assume that? Oh, because it did that to you…..

        • Commissar says:

          No, because you thought looking at them would make someone more likely to want to buy condoms.

          The desire for sex is the primary driver of consumer demand for condoms.

          So, for you to think that image would drive condom sales then it it is reasonable to conclude that the image triggered your desire for sex.

          • SFC D says:

            As always, you’re wrong. Let me get my crayons. Listen carefully. He’s referring to this plane load of whimpering cowards as prime examples of why condoms are necessary. No one would want to willingly participate in the spawning of these whiny pissants. Some folks have a similar feeling about you. Here ended the lesson.

            Remember folks, please spay and neuter your progress liberals.

        • Poetrooper says:

          Master Chief, he missed your point entirely, a not-unusual occurrence with the none-too-quick and humorless Lars.

  9. Berliner says:

    So 51 vaccinated Texas House democrats, along with 12 taxpayer-paid staff, avoiding responsibility to Texas taxpayers flew to Washington DC on private jets. 51 missing House members is the magic number to break a quorum, stopping action by the legislature. They are staying in the Washington Plaza Hotel, where the cheap rooms are $189 a night.

    Under the Texas Constitution, lawmakers earn a salary of $600 per month, as well as a per diem for every day they are in session that is currently established at $221 per day. Every day they are “missing” costs Texas taxpayers $43,330.00.

    One legislator thought to bring a case of Miller Lite beer on the flight. Another had the misfortune to bring a case of Corona, sharing with two others.

    • OWB says:

      Who paid for the flight? I don’t know anything other than the only news report I heard on the topic said that it was a taxpayer funded aircraft. Maybe, maybe not. Who knows.

  10. Commissar says:

    Masks would have made no difference?

    It is about reducing the probability of spread and reducing the viral load of exposure.

    Think of it like a “bullet proof” vest. Bullet proof vests do not make you bullet proof, nor are the vests themselves actually “bullet proof”, but they improve your odds substantially because they absorb a significant amount of the bullet’s energy.

    Masks reduce the amount of viral load you expel onto others, and reduce the amount of viral load you inhale.

    It is absolutely ridiculous this argument is still happening 18 months into a pandemic.

    Masks help. Period. Some masks are more effective than others, but they do reduce the probability of spread and thus the total number of people infected over time.

    • Mason says:

      Then wear a mask if it makes you feel better, but you have no reason to force anyone else. Same with taking the experimental vaccine. If you want it, take it, if not, that’s your decision.

    • USMC Steve says:

      No they don’t actually. Every mask that I have seen filters only that which you BREATHE IN. They don’t filter what you are BREATHING OUT. Thus if you already have China virus, when you breathe out, it is spewing out all over the place. And that six feet bullshit is just so much fantasy nonsense.

    • OldManchu says:

      Condoms are effective. Too bad you didn’t end up in the end of one.

    • NHSparky says:

      I read this and now I just want to shoot you in the face while you’re wearing your mask. (hyperbole)

      Christ you really are a dipshit.

  11. Commissar says:

    I know a few of you are still thinking “nah-ah, a virus is smaller than the weave of the masks people are wearing”…

    Yeah, but the virus is aerosolized in droplets of spittle when you talk or exhale. Those droplets are substantially larger than a single virion.

    In fact a single droplet of spittle can have a viral load of 10^2-10^11 virions.

    • SFC says:

      And if these cowardly elected “leaders” had stayed home and done their jobs instead of running and hiding, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation. Now you can tell me why these oxygen thieves weren’t wearing masks, despite FAA requirements. Are they above the law?

      • NHSparky says:

        Shhhhh…logic.

        Next thing you know he’s going to have to figure out if they had to show ID for their hotel room or to board an airplane, cause even private airplanes require you to show identification before proceeding into any secure area of an airport.

        (insert splodey head here)

  12. Roh-Dog says:

    We need to find the head witch and burn her (presuming that is zer’s preferred pronoun) at the stake.

    Anything to save us from this scourge of a virus we have a 98%* chance of surviving!

    (* this BS stat have a CRAPTON of individuals who were circling the proverbial drain with a number of co-morbid conditions. Sorry, definitely not sorry.)

    The dis-eases of corporate control and anti-Liberty actions are our ONLY concern.

  13. USMC Steve says:

    I just saw where two more tested positive for a total of five.

  14. Devtun says:

    WH & Pelosi aides contract the coof after TX Dem reception. Brilliant.
