Democrat representatives fled the state of Texas this week in a stupid effort to prevent Republicans from being able to pass new voting measures.
They will have a surprise waiting for them when they finally come back.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is saying they will be arrested when they return.
FOX News reports:
Texas’ Abbott says Dems who ‘fled’ state over elections bill will be arrested upon return
Gov. Greg Abbott, the Texas Republican, criticized state Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., on Monday in an effort to deprive the Legislature of a quorum, thus the ability to vote on the GOP’s sweeping elections overhaul bill.
Abbott appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday to defend the bill and say the missing lawmakers will be arrested upon their return to the state. He said members of the Texas House of Representatives who are still in the state can call for the arrests of their colleagues who do not show up to vote. The one caveat is the arrest has to be made in the state.
“Once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business,” he said.
Republicans argue the contentious bill would provide greater election security, while Democrats charge it would suppress voter turnout of minorities.

Abbott should make sure there are TV cameras present when the Democrats get arrested.
Lots of people will tune in to see that.
