Arrest warrants issued for Texas House Dems who fled to avoid vote

In their efforts to exploit procedural rules by fleeing their state of representation, over 50 Texas state House lawmakers boarded private planes and flew to Washington D.C. in their effort to stall a vote on a controversial voting laws bill.

According to KTLA, Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott threatened to have the Democratic state lawmakers arrested, and on Tuesday, he and state House Republicans made good on that promise after they formally issued arrest warrants for the fleeing Democrats. 

What’s going on?

Texas Democrats claim they all flew to the nation’s capital to rally their voters to support a federal voting rights legislative piece that would radically transform how elections take place across the country, with many claiming that, if passed, it would be a boon for Democratic candidates everywhere.

But the real reason why the Democrats left was to stall a vote in their own state, a vote that sets in motion a Republican-favored voting law, not unlike recent voting integrity laws passed in Georgia and other states, which sparked a backlash from Democrats, including from President Joe Biden.

By fleeing the state in droves, the Texas Democrats made it impossible for a required quorum, thus denying the Texas House from taking a vote on the proposed voting reform laws.

The Democrats who fled generated headlines after posting selfies across their social media accounts, jokingly referring to themselves as “fugitives.

According to the Texas Tribune, the large contingent of Texas House Democrats held a press conference in Washington D.C. on Tuesday morning, in which they vowed to remain outside of their state for the duration of the special session at the Texas Capitol.

“They will be arrested”

Abbott threatened the Texas House Dems with arrest during an interview on Monday night with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, adding that they will be forced to return to the state legislature to carry on with business.

“Once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business,” Abbott said.

Texas Republican House Speaker Dade Phelan made the arrest warrants official on Tuesday, saying “A sergeant-at-arms and any officers appointed by him are directed to send for all absentees whose attendance is not excused, for the purpose of securing and maintaining their attendance, by warrant of arrest if necessary.”

A vote to make the arrest warrants formal was passed shortly thereafter, in a 76-4 vote.

Only time will tell what happens to the state Democrats who fled to D.C., but state Republicans have zero intention of giving up on passing the bill, and are obviously ready to do whatever it takes to make sure it receives a fair vote.

  2. Obviously these idiots fleeing Texas is part of a ” Coordinated Democrat ” effort to suppress the overwhelming will of the voters in Texas so ” Voter Fraud ” can continue unabated everywhere. Having an inarticulate moron like Beijing Biden who is suffering from Alzheimer’s as a spokesperson is incredible as he is responsible for voting against school busing in the 70’s, Co – Sponsor of the 1994 Crime Bill incarcerating 10’s of thousands of people of color and gave the Eulogy for Senator Robert Byrd of West Virgina a KKK Grand Dragon. Moreover, he and his Democrat Cohorts in eight years with Obama did absolutely nothing for people of color. Quite pathetic !!!!!!

    1. My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.

  16. Your article stated that the bill is a Republican-favored voting law and that is not correct. SB 1 does not favor any political party, race or any group of people. It is a common sense bill that, when voting, makes it Easier to Vote and Harder to Cheat. Voting hours have been added but ballot harvesting and drive-thru voting have been done away with. What most democrats are yelling about are that the voting practices that were ONLY enacted due to covid, and have now been taken out. Many of the things they are complaining about have been in the Texas voting code for MANY years, they are not new. Texas does not have rampant fraud, like AZ/Georgia/PA/and other states, but it has more than enough and needs to be stopped now.

  17. Suspend their pay until they return to work. If they don’t return within a certain amount of time, hold a vote and vote them out. They should pay for the flight out of their own pockets. They should also be fined and face the same punishments for flying without masks like the rest of us would be!

  18. perhaps a republican should run to upseat everyone of these parasites. I believe enough people would vote them out if a strong candidate ran against them.

  19. Now is the time to audit each demonrat NAACP that took off. See how many finished school. See who is legally in USA, and who is a DACA. Obummer wasnt American so him saying others could come in. He never made them legal. Soros is a mentally ill ignorant Hungarian. He sold out his own family and village dureing nazi regime. Hes a horrid pig like Killery and pelousey.
