The first warrant has now been issued for one of the Texas Democrat lawmakers who illegally fled the state in order to try and sabotage a piece of conservative legislation.

As The Hill reports:

Texas state House Speaker Dade Phelan (R) this week signed the first warrant directed at state Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., to prevent a vote on a controversial election bill.

Phelan signed a civil warrant Sunday for Rep. Philip Cortez, The Washington Post reported on Monday.

Cortez initially left Texas with fellow Democratic state legislators on July 12 but went back in what he said was an attempt to work with Republicans on the legislation opposed by Democrats.

Cortez returned to Texas on Wednesday to negotiate with Republicans before he fled the state for a second time.

Gov. Greg Abbott has vowed to call another session of the legislature once Democrats return to the state to ensure that the legislation in question isn’t sabotaged by the Democrats’ insane move.

What a bunch of outlandish childish acts! Stay here and debate the election security issues and come to a conclusion that works for ALL people! Otherwise resign your seat and let another person that WILL DEBATE this issue have your old seat. Cowards RUN when faced with real and sometimes difficult issues!!!

Yeah, nice idea but nothing will come of this. Too bad though, because I’d like to see them fully prosecuted for this ridiculous, childish, liberal stunt!

The party that lost the civil war and believes that some men are destined to enslave others sees an opportunity to build on the corruption of the Federal bureaucracy by Obama. These elites think that they are the best and the most entitled, as nobility of old, and they suffer from our very existence.

Wrong again the democrats were the party of slave owners ( even you know the great emanapator was Aberaham Lincoln) and he started party) you should spend more time reading history and less time reading democrat pablem. Educate and then we can have an adult conversation.
