AUSTIN, TX – Texas State Senator Charles Perry Monday issued a statement about House Democrats fleeing the state to avoid having to do their job and vote on a bill increasing election security.
Senator Perry is from Lubbock and represents San Angelo. The following is his statement:
Today, House Democrats fled Texas to Washington, D.C. in protest of an election integrity bill that adds sensible voter protections and reaffirms current Texas law. They are running from a bill that extends voting hours and expands assistance for those who cannot read a ballot. Encouraged by far left activist groups, Texas Democrats chose to ignore their duty to serve the people of Texas. This is disrespectful of what a constitutional republic needs to function, but it is reflective a nation in distress where the rules do not matter.
The case of Miller Lite on their party bus shows how seriously they are taking these shenanigans.
