Kamala Goes On A Surprise Trip After Debacle During Visit With Absconding Texas Dems
Vice President Kamala Harris made a surprise trip after she had close contact with absconding Texas Democrats.
On a Sunday, Harris went to Walter Reed for a “routine doctors’s appointment” after it was reported she has close contact with three state officials that fled Texas.

However, word from the White House was that her office went into a panic.

Kamala was exposed to COVID after meeting with the Tik Tok loving Texas Democrats House members from Texas. The members hopped on a privately funded charter plane and headed to DC in an effort to block a voter integrity law. Not only do they have no idea how to spell, they can’t count either (image is at the bottom of are article in case it’s deleted).

The Texas constitution requires a certain amount of embers present to conduct state business (called quorum) and the state can force (by arrest) lawmakers to return so the session can continue. To stop a voter integrity bill they can’t stop about 58 Democrats fled on a private plane to DC to beg Congress to take over state election systems however, they may have gotten their math wrong.
A Texas senate aid told New York Times reporter Nick Corasaniti that most Texas Democratic senators are remaining in the State. The Republican aid said that quorum is expected and they will “take up SB1.”

The bill will be sitting ready to be voted on once Democrats return or are returned to Texas.
““As soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done,” Abbott stated. “Everybody who has a job must show up to do that job, just like your viewers on watching right now. State representatives have that same responsibility.”
Abbott also said that he’s got all the time in the world to play this game with Democrats he will continue to call continuously for special sessions.
“And so if these people want to be hanging out wherever they’re hanging out on this taxpayer-paid junket, they’re going to have to be prepared to do it for well over a year,” the Texas governor warned.
Abbott may not need to wait for them to return, the Texas House voted 76 to 4 to send law enforcement out to find the absconding Democrats.
