Democrats Humiliated After Another Plot To Stop Election Integrity Bill FAILS
The plot to stop the Texas voter integrity bill has failed.
Democrats from Texas walked off the job weeks ago to prevent the bill from getting passed. The group even caused a COVID outbreak in Washington while visiting at the White House and with Pelosi.
Over time, one by one, the Democrats returned to Texas and were forced to get back to work. The Republican House voted to pass the bill 80-41 and just hours later the Senate passed the law 18-13 along party lines. The bill is a huge victory and the text will now go to Texas Governor Greg Abbott to sign into law.
After the bill passed Abbott announced he is excited to sign the bill:
Protecting the integrity of our elections is critical in the state of Texas, which is why I made election integrity an emergency item during the 87th legislative session.
Senate Bill 1 creates uniform statewide voting hours, maintains and expand voting access for registered voters that need assistance, prohibits drive-through voting, and enhances transparency by authorizing poll watchers to observe more aspects of the election process. The bill also bans the distribution of unsolicited applications for mail-in ballots and gives voters with a defective mail-in a ballot the opportunity to correct the defect.
The Texas election integrity bill is on its way to my desk!

Texas is joining 17 other states that have passed voter integrity laws in response to the 2020 election.
State Senator Bryan Hughes who wrote the bill believes passing the bill is a “big deal.”
“All of these pieces put together will give us a secure system for everybody. … It’s a big deal. Anyone who tells you there’s no voter fraud in Texas is telling you a very big lie. We know what happens. The right to vote is too precious. It costs too much for us to leave it unprotected,” Hughes added.
