Texas Democrats Throwing Tantrum Over Election Integrity Tout Their ‘Sacrifice’ As They Flee State In Private Jet

By

Texas Democrats throwing a tantrum over an election integrity bill are claiming their swift exit from the state on private jets was a “sacrifice” in their fight against “voter suppression” in the state.

“Just landed in Memphis on our way to DC. Thank y’all for your well wishes. We left behind our families, our livelihoods, & our beloved Texas. But our sacrifice is nothing compared to the sacrifices brave Americans have made throughout history to protect the sacred right to vote,” announced “proud progressive” state Rep. James Talarico on Twitter.

Talarico is one of the 50-plus Lone Star State Democrats who chose to flee the state on Monday evening in a last-ditch attempt to protest the GOP bill, which was reintroduced in a special session this week by Republicans who want more election security for mail-in ballots including voter ID.
